No seat! No throttle hook up!
LOOK! He changed the WHEELS!
Can anybody see those tiny pictures?
Is White Settlement a real location? Or a racist TX joke?

Sorry!

You have posted this in the wrong location. and I doubt any Moderators will help YOU move it!

and Dont forget Entrants Rule #3:
3) Must maintain their DIYGK membership status in good standing for the entire duration of the contest.

I think by "good standing" that means you cannot get BANNED Till the contest is over!

But hey; Good luck!

Alright...so...first problem in the build:

The 72 tooth sprocket doesn't leave a lot of wiggle room on the HF wheel for ground clearance...(may be a spark thrower)...

Will address later...

Thats easy, just keep wrapping duct or gorilla tape arount the tire till you get clearance.

Just put extra air in the tire. that will increase your clearance for the big sprocket.
well of course After you get the Compressor Re Wired.
and don't forget to weld up the HF Wheel.
PAFR bro!
[edit] I found this helpful info from a recent thread at the Forum:
"oversized inner tubes by 2 inches for extra "ride" cushion and less chance of leakage from the inner tubes due to stretching." TX, FR15
