    Honda Cub winter build , sort of rst bike

    Ok guys so im starting a build, been out of the monkey bike scene for a while and im missing it a bit.
    We have a 1970s honda cub with a stock 50 ( thats going to change ).
    So im thinking rat bike style with a little bling... needs to be a reliable rider

    Ok so tonight i got the Lifan motor in place to see what i needed to modify to make it fit ..
    Big suprise for me as it bolted straight in , only need to bend out the brake arm a touch and its a perfect fit .
    I love it when a plan comes together.....

    if you want to save the time and effort of extending the foot peg bar to fit the lifan you can run the clutch cover from your original engine. you will need to use the original honda clutch adjuster set up. It works as i’ve tried it.

    agree with diggs. you may not be roadworthy if you chop it.
