Got the half link & have been doing test rides over the last week. Been playing with the needle settings to see if lean or rich is better. I think an aftermarket expansion chamber might be cool.
The Sportsman Flyer sprocket & adapter is cool as it clamps to the rear hub; much better than the engine kits that clamp to the spokes.
Btw if y'all know of someone who has an XR6 or XR8 who would like to lower their fuel bills & swap it for the 250 bobber & this boardtracker replica then please lemme know - cheers. Would prefer a Turbo XR6 but one with the Tickford red top motor would do. 2001 or later.
If you are doing some bicycling then this is much easier than having to pedal all the time Very Happy

as with many of my projects Ive put it on the market, so I dont wanna get into too much detail with that...let's just say I had to get everything apart from the motor from the states, & the shipments were numerous, to get all the bits I wanted...so it wasnt what I'd call cheap, for a motored bicycle...but cheaper than a 1911 Indian tho
