Thanks I owe it to my dad who made me buy an old car for my first car so I'd have to work on it and learn "you'll save money in future" he said, ha spending more just not any to fix it :headbashing:

So ran into a bit of a snag here, the clamp barely clears the battery box and worried about the cables and wires binding any ideas on a way to route them?
So played around with them for awhile got it to work, this is as clean as I could get it, at least until I do my extension I will reroute the wires and cables to get it cleaner looking.

So I'm at a stalemate for now, the seat frame should be in stock today to be sent out, fingers crossed. My trail tech gauge should be here on saturday, and I hope to get my sliders Thur or Fri.
I am also trying to think of how to do the rear, I will extend it I need to add some little details to change it up. If you have any pics please share I need inspiration.

Update I got my seat frame today got installed, however my handlebars are too high now. So I did get a new handlebar and stem, its a flat mtnbike bar, aluminum I have read about people saying their bars cracked. I don't know if they are doing something else with them besides riding/commuting. Anyone know why they would crack? It seems on a mtnbike would be more abused. Tying down with them??

I don't see a problem with the aluminum handle bars. Mine are aluminum and I use them as a tie down source when I load it up on the pickup truck.

As for the rear end, it really depends on what YOU want to do. First I'd consider if you want to keep it skinny wheel in the rear or a fatty. Are you happy with the GET engine? What's your budget? Answer those questions before proceeding

I'm going to stay GET for reliability I've already a car I had to continue to work on to keep it running right.

The rear brake cable was horrible to stop the binding and from it putting the brake on when I turned. I'll take a pic of it when I get home tonight to show what I did to make it work.
Image
My throttle cable just barely rubs the headlight bracket so I'll have to figure out how to move the throttle cable or lower the headlights. I'm kinda leaning towards lowering the headlights.

Yeah those cables suck to tuck in nice AND actually still work right.. i said srew it and just left a nice loop. My latest bar setup started with a ruckshop stem and 7/8 drag bars.. i just never liked the bmx stuff. seem'd like those bmx stems kinda move bars forward too much for cables..

So since ya wrench and do your own stuff, ya got a welder laying around or friend with one? Lower that headlight and make somethin cool!

Its comming along nicely..

Its the one that came with the kit to install it. It comes with 2 sizes for the handle bar mount and I bought a longer screw/bolt to fit the fat part of the handle bar.

So this is a pic of my rear brake cable I used the holder thing under the gas tank and mounted it on the CVT cover to take up some of the slack out I'll have to paint it black so it matches my scoot
