Steve,

What gap do you run on your plugs with those coils? I've got mine wired and running... but no pictures. Tomorrow. I was just wondering. I have the stock gap / plug type now and MAN you were right it really runs better hands down... I did have some other issues going on but, first kick... I love these old bikes...

John:

Mostly stock, a bit trimmed in the rear. And most of the spot welded seams are welded together, the backbone and along the back rails, for strength.

Nova:

I didn't change anything at all with the coils. Kept the same gap, point and plug. Seems to work lovely.

Steve

P.S. Thanks for the comments guys. I just wish my hand would heal so I could ride the thing...

They are Avon Roadriders. Only tire I would suggest for stock sized wheels. Absolutely night and day versus anything else. They are tubeless tires, so be ready for a fight when you try to mount them up with tubes. And be careful not to pinch one. But they are awesome, great grip, smooth turn in, great wet traction, everything. And be rest assured it was a bit alarming when I hit my toe slider for the first time on my home built machine, but that gives you an idea of the lean angle on these pups.

And yup, I raced BMX for several years when I was in Middle/High school. Still ride occasionally, but my knees are shot. Switched to park/street freestyle later in my career, and well, the family knees just gave up. Still love it though.

And thanks. I too, like the bike a lot. Ironically, even after all the changes, and my total indecisiveness, I don't think I'd change a thing right now.

Steve, I might have to buy those tires. Looking for something a little more 'sporty'.

I raced BMX during those same years of my life, and quit for pretty much the same reason. I shattered my leg and knee in a skiing accident, and life was never the same. I switch to city riding but it wasn't in the cards and having a life unfortunately won.

Here's the last bike i put together. Terrible 1 bar code and a bunch of other stuff.

Hey Woody -

You never did give me any details about how you finally fitted the headlight bucket to those fork ears.
Is that the small 5-1/4" shell or the larger one??
Did you make some spacers??

so, what sizes are you running front and back.

It looks like you guys are running the same size on front and back. True?

Definitely will be the next set of tires I buy.
