This is the build report for my Lifan 140/CT200 Frankenbike! Her name is Linda. ( LIfan + hoNDA = LINDA ) If you don't like small bikes, or the jackassery that people do with them, or if you're a purist, then you won't have any fun here, so just go away. :huh So, if you're still here, and interested in the build, I'll go on with the story. I started buying parts for her over a year ago, as I could afford to. I'm forced to be a cheap bastage right now, so I needed to build, instead of buying a bike. I really did want to just buy one because it would have been easier, and I could have started riding sooner, but there's no way that I was going to pay the prices that people were asking for junk on CL around here! They're asking almost the same price for an old 80's or 90's bike, no title, needs work, easy fix, was running good when parked 7 years ago, etc., as the dealer is selling the new bikes for. So, I just decided to build one. This may not be as fun as one of RTW Doug's builds, but I'll try to keep you entertained as I go along. Maybe someone else out there is like me, and will be inspired to build their own bike too. The frame is a 1966 CT-200, which is a Trail 90. They didn't come with a 200cc engine, but they called them a 200? Confusing? Yeah, me too. That's probably why they finally started calling them CT-90s after a few years. I picked the frame up for around $40. The engine is a 140cc Chinese Lifan that I picked up last year for around $249 on bay. They have gone up a bit since then. Maybe it's just a summer thing? Anyway, they are still cheaper than a real Honda engine, and they're bigger with more power. The other parts are from different years, makes and models of bikes. Just various parts that I have been scrounging up along the way. The rear wheel is a 17" from a CT-90 or CT-110, and I'm going to put that double sprocket on it to give me a good gear range. The inner sprocket is 40 tooth, the outer is 68! That should be fun for off-road! This is my rear drive, It's got more than one. One is for streetin', One is for fun! The front wheel is a 19" from something else. I forgot what, but I got the brake drum and axle with it, so I'll make it work! They will both be wearing some new Shinko Trials tires. I'm starting to work on cleaning up parts, and getting them ready for assembly, so I'll take pics as I go. Then, I'll be able to see what else I will need to get from Dr. ATV, or whoever else carries the parts to put these things together. The weather has really sucked around here lately, with temps over 100º, and humidity over 70%, and I haven't really felt like working in it much, but I'll try to keep plugging away at her. Even the mosquitoes are lazy. The other day, when I was out there, a couple of them called me over. In their Cheech and Chong voices, they were saying, "Hey man, if you're gonna be dooin' some chit out here, and you cut yourself, do us a favor an' come over here to drip the blood. We'll just lay here an' catch it, OK, dude?" And the other one said, "Yeah, man, and while you're at it, put some ice in it, man." Or maybe the heat was getting to me? (Sorry for the typo in the title!) .
