Thanks for the nice comments. Here's a pic of the lh rear damper. They are adjustable so hopefully one day will get the chance to set them up.

I removed the governor and made a new throttle linkage. Made an air filter from bits of god knows what laying aroung and painted the covers green.

I do like that you have a return spring on the throttle butterfly Jim.

That is very cool. That simple detailing on the engine makes it look period and I love it!

I made a back light this morning out of a tea light holder, a bell, a guage bezel and some other bits. Maybe not to everyones taste but it was cheap.

Thanks Marek, I found a photo from a couple of weeks back. Hope it doesn't keep going upside down.

The light is only a battery powered led in a silicone rubber housing that would stretch around handlebars. A brake light is easy to put in using a pressure switch teed into the brake lines or switch that is operated by the pedal.

I have bought one of those 38 quid gx200 engines off ebay and the quality looks the same as the other clone engine I have which is ok. I had an old  carb so I reamed it out to 16.7mm and polished the bores. I removed a load of excess material from the throttle butterfly and got rid of the choke. I also drilled the jet to 0.9mm. I have opened up the ports on the head using a dremel, fitted 1.3 ratio rockers and 18lb springs. I filed the key to give 4 degrees more advance and removed the governor. This should hopefully be quite a revvy motor.

I assume it has a 3/4" output shaft then, I did ask them, but have yet to receive an answer.
