The two cross bars on top (under where the seat would go) and the sides (where a side cover originally was) are all new. I also added some welds to parts that looked under built. This thing is rated at stock 2hp…the new motor will put out about 12 with the big bore…so there is a bit of a difference there!
On a side…or rather…front note, I finally pulled the trigger on the front end! Should be here in 2-3 days! Super can’t wait for that. Tomorrow I hope to have the motor completely mounted, so I can pull it and start the engine tear down.
