Tires wheels and Mudhugger installed. The mudhugger was having clearance issue with the chain with the mtb wheels but the moto wheel smaller radius allowed to mount lip inside and under the swing arm giving the needed clearance. This is the long fender that is available. I will test the bike today on rougher terrain than I normally run to be sure the wheels and spokes are ok. I like the look.

I like to build it better than I can buy it. I like to think outside the box...Come to think of it where is that box?

What kind of tires are those? They look like they're pretty hefty.

This bike works so much better with the new tires. The control and I feel way more confident soaks up all the pot holes and bad road. I also moved the 48T sprocket into the middle for alignment to the chain and the cadence is about perfect for what I want. New hardened chain for the high km also added.

Hows your rear air suspension holding up?
Last year I used a rockshox but it was too much bike to handle constantly bottom out. Coil/oil seems to work better this year.

Great so far its a $50 used one from local bike shop. I have not bottomed out yet but biggest ting I have gone over is curbs and stairs.

Couple packages this week. Horn I will mount on the weekend and a new stem. The stem is a BMX stem with 1 1/8 mount, this will allow me to mount standard MX bars if I find a set I like.

I have found my swing arm bushing is getting sloppy already will pull apart and maybe make better bushing on the weekend or I might just build bearing set for it.

The moto wheels pull about an extra 3AH over 32km round trip for work, with me pedaling a lot more now with better 48T front chain ring.

Swing arm bushing tightened up with no issue.

I had my first run in with the local police. This is how it went.

Biking home 11:30 pm tonight pull up to red light, as I sit there a cruiser with the push bar very slow in my peripheral. I start to think here we go first chat.

Officer- grinning ear to ear "WOW! I was wondering how you got up those hills so fast"
Me "yup I have to pedal a lot but it works great"
Officer " Wow that's fantastic it looks awesome"
Me -feeling relived " Ya its way better then those cheap scooters I used to drive!"

Light turns green I go straight he turns, still huge a grin on his face. I am very happy with my first chat with the locals.

I have a legal tune in the golden motor. I am enjoying the exercise the fantastic ride the looks and smiles I get every time I drive it. When I drove the store bought scooters I got hate every time I drove it and the change is nice. :)
