Painted the engine today, really happy with how it came out, super glossy. Also managed to get many of the other bits together to build a rolling chassis.
I’ve got so many CG125 parts left over I thought I would build another one to use them up. I managed to pick up a frame, engine and some other bits and bobs for a good price so I now should have everything I need to complete. This one will begin it’s next life as it started it’s first life, as a CG110. And so it begins again.
I fancied a bit more bling so fitted a chrome carburetor. Changed the front sprocket to a 17 tooth as well. It will now do an indicated 120Km/h flat out . OK on the motorway cruising at 90-100Km/h now. The bigger sprocket was just what it needed. Not sure about all the yellow though. I will change the tubes and paint the choke lever black.
Did this one in a day 🙂
Massive session in our garage working on Anges bike today. We started with her stock standard bike at 12 noon and now almost everything is done apart from the dreaded electrics (which I’m glad to say are Anges department). 10 hours solid, no lunch or dinner just some beersies for me. Looking really good 😃 I’m shattered now.
I got a new Inverter MIG welder for Christmas so today I completed the front mudguard. I’m a bit average at welding, but the angle grinder hides many sins. It definitely won’t come to bits though. Paint job is a bit average too, but I needed to get paint on it quickly before it started to rust. Might give it a repaint once the sun comes out.
