Been busy working on the bike, but not going as quickly as I hoped. However it is coming along.

Cleaned up the forks and got the front wheel and brake done. Here's how that is looking:

Not real happy with where the brake cable has to go with this brake support, so I'm rebuilding it. Should have some pictures of the finished piece in a few days.

I cleaned up the rear wheel, brake and installed the new rear sprocket. Stuck everything on the bike, including the engine, so I could check alignment.

When I got the bike, the motor and wheel were attached, but there wasn't a chain. So when I wrapped a chain around the sprockets, I discovered a problem.

I knew the frame was modified and so I inquired about what changes were made, I found out the foot pegs had been reinforced. Yep!

In case you are wondering, I did get the slack out of the chain and tried to run it under the "new support" and still have a problem.

Looks like I might need to modify the frame again!!
Life is short, live and enjoy it !!!
