Chapter 1 - Plans and Teardown

Unfortunately, I do not have many photos of this phase, in large part due to a phone that died bad enough that I lost a couple years' worth of pictures.

After I got the bike, it sat for a while while I researched and sourced a motor. At the time I got it, I lived in Michigan (hi No-nos! Thanks Troy for picking the bike up for me!). I found a motor cheap enough on CL while I still lived there, and started prepping the frame for it. I started by stripping down to the frame, and then some:

Frame was stripped of paint - with wire wheels and aircraft stripper. What a pain without a sandblaster. Then any unneeded (and probably some needed, let's be honest) tabs/mounts were removed. And two big cuts (three? four actually?) were made: the swoopy downtube had to go to make room for a motor with a more vertical cylinder, and the swingarm was going to get a little longer, for stability and appearance.
