Default DNF - 2018 - The Hangman

Well, here it is after eight years of sitting in the back of the shed^__^
You do not have the pleasure of seeing the nasty 49-50cc engine that was on it... Maybe the previous owner had a wipe out!?? But, It was missing a few parts and I really didn't want to get to dirty on this one! So, what we have is a frame with some what looks like new tires and a few fenders and tank(cover) the chain guard may not be going back as I am moving the motor and mono shock! It will instead have dual shocks and the motor will be on the swing arm!! I have reconditioned the seat with a very good rub down with murphy's oil soap(use on all inside your car!) And, I think I'm pleased with it! I've given the chrome the once over with the steel wool and a little TSP and water!! Almost like new^__^ I've checked the brakes and they're gone all around and are getting new and new cables for safety! Lot's of mirrors^__^ I'm not vane I thought the euro look really went with my idea... I've got power outlets and tons of lighting with switches galore!
48v to 12v converter will power all my accessory "schtuff". I think I'm going to go Gloss Black And, it's heart beats a 1800watt 48volt 14Ah beast with two sets of gears... Roughly, 30 and 40 MPH.... Sorry, the speedo is 60Mph not 80 my mistake before^__^ As soon as I get my grinder back from my Dad's I'll start to chop off all the old mounts and brackets I don't need everywhere. Then I need to make a few new ones for the shocks and weld them in place. I think I'll make a hard wood platform and "schtuff" for my battery which goes where the old gas bunk went and all my electronics under the tank! I'm waiting on a few more do dads this week and I should have everything I need!?
I Hope everyone really likes what I got even if I don't win^___^
I think we'll all really be winners in the end though^___^
Enjoy! Enjoy! and Thank You All my new Friends! We'll Talk!

Hmmmm, I was thinking looking at my pics...
I may extend the swing arm and make it just a bit longer? I think
it'll smoothen out the ride and handling with the new dual shocks?
Mocked them in to get a look at them... Maybe, 2-4inch extension?
I'll have to have the eggs do the math for me^__^

As long as you don't extended your posts!

Seriously, we don't mind a ton of info....but most folks find it hard to read a solid block of print.

Maybe you could break those up a little in the future?

Thank You, Thank You!!!

So, Got some breakage and my high speed gear on!
Just dilly dallying around waiting for my grinder(((((

Put the highway bar on but, the brackets were never
welded on the frame straight! AHH! I don't weld!!!
I take to the local welding shop! Kick stand works!

The eggs said leave it alone it looks great and the
swing arm extension would most likely lead to a
rake in the front to make it all aesthetic!!??

It's hard to work a ten to twelve hour day and come
home to do more work! But, at least this is fun work!

I enjoyed it and became quite relaxed in my work^__~

Tonight I think I'll do some paint work! I'm home early!

Just a few coats of primer...
And, a rough "ACO" gloss black undercoat...
2 cans of the car spray paint for the tops! L8R!

Not, sure if I should do the chips or cracks!?
The chromes not perfect anymore!
"Recycled Flavor" Right!?^__^

Got some holes lined up for some switches
and a BIG hunk out to lay in the speedo!
You'll never know afterwards^__~

I guess my "accessory panel" assembled.
