so this thing hasnt been updated since fucking ever. if you actively want to follow this i would suggest going to instagram and following me there, but ill post some updates here for everyone. my insta handle is @ryanjblajda. who would have thunk it.

fuel pump came in a day early. woot.
stuff to drop off at powdercoat. my mount started to get some surface rust after welding. i will be keeping the kickstart and stock CVT cover because i am a worry wart and i dont want my case snapping, and i want to be able to kickstart it if i need to.
a back angle of my awesome fireball steadygarage exhaust.
a friend of mine donated his wheels from his donor because the rear wheel on mine was super fucked. if anyone wants a brand new 13" scooter tire with a cut in the sidewall for $15 let me know. i have no use for it now.
i actually love the 5 spoke front wheel more than the ones i had originally.
bought a trailtech vector (not a vapor like i was told unfortunately so i have to run a tto tach), bars, stem, tto tach, and some adelin knockoff controls for $60 from a friend of a friend.
here are a few views of my custom engine mount i designed based off the buggy depot gy6 mount. i used hardware from McMaster Carr to build engine hangers. i love rod ends/heim joints. they make me happy. they are rated to 6,323lbs static load per joint and there are 2 per side, so this mount isnt going anywhere.
getting my shock to sit square was a fucking pain. i had to modify the shock and modify my CVT case by grinding it down near the mounting point. being anal is a nightmare.
i have heard and seen shit on FB about cases snapping and such so i want everything to be as square and as braced as possible. ill need to add a bolt through the rear frame on my shock extension, but that will probably happen once my mount gets back from powdercoat so i can just bolt everything up at once.
