Hi guru, assuming you still have the bike could you send me a couple of pic's.
It sounds like a pile of parts - have you ever had it running ?
Can you send me your email address, although I think this is frowned upon on the forum ?

Perhaps you might like to give us progress reports (with photos) of the completion of the project if you have time? Good luck with getting it up and running.
