    Its also back on 17 inch rim on the rear as the +10cm swingarm wasn't long enough for the massive knobbly 18inch tyre. Even the 17 meant I had to cut part of the swingarm to fit it.

    Not sure if it shows, but I cut part of the middle brace out of the swingarm.
    I've still not ridden it as my clutch has fused together due to being stood so long...

    My little helper/buttman has been assisting me with the white cub.
    Which has just had some VERY fun parts ordered for.

    Springer forks.
    An underbody noisy exhaust.
    And 2 engines. Not sure which is going where.
    But here is one:
    https://www.pitbikeparts.co.uk/yx140cc-electric-start-semi-auto-p-3649.html
    I ordered a carb too.
    The other engine is a bit more sensible.
    For a racebike.
    You can all guess for a while.
    Also pitbike parts are the UK dealer for kepspeed. Good products.

    So the new motor is 5 speed.
    And probably faster than a runner with a 180 kit....
    Any guesses?

    No. Maybe I will in the future. Easy job to do.

    Yes! 190 zongshen. Which is just a Daytona with a 2v head. Good for 17hp at the flywheel.

    The crosser one I think. Im not sure it will fit in the white one as the front wheel will touch the cylinder. I think anyway.
