I don't know... maybe you could add a a rod from the drum lever and attach the stock cable to the rod.

I will give that some consideration thanks!!! I re routed the cable and it might work just very snug.

ID:	56738Thought I would update my ongoing timeline of the wifes bike. She fired up and runs good. Now she wants leds on it. Im going with http://www.ledunderbody.com/Advanced...hting-Kit.aspx They seem to be a good company I put some footwell lights in my Freightliner from them. and real easy if your want to trick out your main ride. Has anybody ran a distro block for power? Im trying to get it to turn on engine start not all the time. After that I need to put in some handlebar speaker and a ipod mount for her. Gaudy is the key here she said. LOL Any power ideas?

Default Ok so the wife wanted a baja mini bike also

Could put one of those high backrests on it like you see on the old street bikes.
Something else that would be cool is a working brake light, and signal lights.

She did mention the sissy bar back rest. That might be in the future. I'm hoping to have a finished product when I get home next weekend. Then I can start the side car for my bike.

I havnt posted anything on the bikes in a while so I thought i would just in case anybody cared. My wife said make mine real gaudy so I did. while I wanted a side car on my bike and just followed a you tube video pretty much to a tee. Im open to creative criticism.

The side car looks pretty cool. How well does it turn with the bike though

Its a lil rough to make a left turn. I need to counter weight it for when there is nobody in the sidecar.

Search for threads by Slicknick. He also made a side car.

Never heard of boiling in lemon juice, have to try that, thanks! By the way, dumb question coming. Are these Baja warriors made in China? Probably ha? My tire says "Dunlop-made in China" never knew they had a plant there? Always thought they were all made here down the road from me in down town Buffalo NY !

Im pretty sure they are made in mexico. For what they are, they are pretty decent. Im building a rear swing arm for mine. The bumps get hard after a while
