So....unfortunately this build has taken a bit of a turn; beyond just not having students at school.

The shop that I paid back in November for the Sachs frame and Trike rear had never shipped; things got a bit crazy and the whole ridiculous thing ended in me getting a refund. I suppose it could have been worse.

Anyhow that kind of killed the flavor of the build. I was at a loss for what to do, finding that rear end was already hard enough; plus finding another person who would be willing to ship it to me, no chance.

Thinking about what I have and what I was building I decided I'll just replace the trike rear with a "dirtped" type setup from the kx80 parts I bought.

It's always frustrating that the fall and spring around here can be finicky with weather(-20 degrees - 50 degrees). The roads are often too wet or sandy to safely ride with a regular moped. I'm hoping the enduro style tires will help with that. Plus having a bike I'm comfortable tossing around.

I'm still planning on doing all the same watercooling, although now I'll have to run antifreeze which sucks.

The 19" big wheel front end should be interesting.

I want to give a massive shoutout to Dos Cycles who have been saving my ass here all along. In addition to all the other small and large parts they've had in stock so far, they are providing me with a usable frame and spare stock rear end; just in case I can't get the kx80 rear wheel to setup properly.

Hoping the engine internals come soon so I can get that all wrapped up. Been spending time cleaning the inside of the cases.

Build it once, build it right.
