Uugh!! Broke a compression ring trying to install my cylinder head! 🙁 Had to take apart and rebuild my whole rear wheel and rag joint Twice cuz of bad bearings in my rear hub. Love Bikes!!!John JonesKeymasterOctober 13, 2018 at 6:25 amPost count: 5910

Think I bought a cheap kit, lots of parts, no instructions!! 😉 😉 🙂John JonesKeymasterOctober 13, 2018 at 9:16 amPost count: 5910
well damn… I’m sure you can buy another set of rings….. bummer though..
We have front and rear old bmx style brakes on my little huffy now… Much more fun to ride knowing you can come in hot…. 😎
These kits would be so fun on a down hill ridged frame out in the trails!!!!! 😎John JonesKeymasterOctober 16, 2018 at 8:02 amPost count: 5910

My first kit I think may have been an ebay special.. but I got the other one’s from BikeBerry.com and Gasbike.net.. I’m excited to spend some more time on this soon… 😎JWDIIParticipantOctober 17, 2018 at 1:31 pmPost count: 374
One of my employees’ 12 year old son got this Schwinn OCC bike out of our shred pile. He got the brakes and other parts from our shred also. He ordered the motor kit offline and got a little help from his dad . He brought it in today for me to see. Pretty good way to recycle an old bike!alykatParticipantOctober 17, 2018 at 2:54 pmPost count: 386

Rusty did you get a new set of rings? or a whole top end?? might as well get a high compression head too…. 😎
