Cover stuff like:
Is 80cc enough for your type of riding?
Stiffened suspension good enough?
Anything you would change?
Great job on the build!
Thanks! I'll do that once I get it plated. I've gone around the neighborhood with it some. The tall seat and bar risers are great. The bike is very comfortable for me. The heavier springs feel nice too. The rear end doesn't bounce around much. That will probably change on the dirt though. But, it's really not going to see much dirt. There are other guys with small bikes on the local forum and we will be doing a dirt ride soon.
I got this as a fun project and to give me some experience wrenching on bikes. I did what I could, and what was plainly over my head, I took to the shop. I can already tell that 80cc's won't be enough. I may see what big bore kits are out there at some point.

Nothing's too cruel if it's funny enough.
