Hi flitdog glad to see your back, looking forward to see how this one comes out

I have just got hold of a CG125 points ignition engine, the engine starts but all the wiring is messed up, if you don't mind me asking how do you wiring the electrics up on the bikes you have built ? 

Cheers,

Dave

Girder forks, on a Bantam?

And a Honda engine?

Just kidding, really...

Four now on the road and at least several in bits.

... I've just had a vision of that big old spring replaced by a modern shock absorber with preload and rebound damping. How mad would that be? cool

In the 50 s we had bicycles with front light brackets on like that which a batterie torch clipped on to and if you had a dynamo fitted that light would also fit to the bracket by a clamp if I remember correctly
