    Feeling shy now...

    Beautiful bike.
    Thank you for your comments! Actually, this is my first minibike build. I had never welded before or made anything from fiberglass but always wanted to do these things. I just started with what I already new and built on that. I already had a small (1/2 hp) bandsaw, a cheap Central Machinery Minilathe and a 1/2" drill press. This build has taken almost a year. With lots of patience, the modern day advantage of the internet (including the invaluable You Tube) and the help of the great people here at OMB you may surprise yourself! Are you building a bike now or planning on it in the future?

    I built one from a kit 5 years ago but was never really happy with it.
    Recently dug it out and am fixing it up as I can, trying real hard not to take it to a small engine guy.

    BTW outstanding first build...

    Awesome job Jag! I told you that 125cc would rip on there. Looking forward to a running vid.

    Thanks, Tony! You were right about rippin'. It is amazing what a tiny little piston can do. I thought I would have a video this weekend but it looks like I won't be able to have it made until Monday.

    I want to get these pics and video wrapped up but now I've got the seat and dash removed. I'm sending the tachometer back to the factory for evaluation as it doesn't work. I also need to run a couple of wires to a new ignition switch so that the engine will shut off when the ignition switch is turned off.

    Okay; I'll cut you some slack. Since you're sending it back, consider upgrading to a 10k or 12k (I'd go 12) RPM tac; I'm sure that 125 is good for more than 8k RPM (probably good to around 9.5k; Lotus 25s I've seen pics of had/have 12k RPM tacs; why not go with a 12k tac?).

    This bike is so fast already without going to high revs that I don't want or need a different tach.

    Hell, I guess after the 12,000rpm tach I'd have to add two more wheels, full suspension, body work, DOHC V8, the list goes on and on....
