7 months New to Pocket Bikes....

& anything remotely mechanical or engine based. 7 months ago I had to YouTube how to start the first pocket bike (47cc Cag) I would end up buying.

Last Monday I completed my first Cag frame/ground up build of a brand 49cc pocket bike. I am beyond stoked, proud & amazed it starts & runs. 😅 I have about Four pocket/1 Super Pocket potential builds. A Tyrod Go-Kart roller next project! Parts being bought slowly. & Three drift trikes.
From the PNW. Washington State. That's about it. Hah'

Re: 7 months New to Pocket Bikes....

Dude, looks like your rims are mounted backwards turn them around. All mine the open side of the rim spoke is on the left. Never seen the open V facing forward. All my treaded tires the point of the V is forward the open back.
CAM2, what do you think. Glad everything worked out good for you. That's why I love the 2 strokes cause it's like caveman, to work on them.
Oh, you have a 47/49cc MT-A1 Cagillari Daytona. Oh, also, your going to have trouble making turns with you foot pegs that low, you might want to turn them up.

Welcome to the forum....Having a hands-on hobby is cool...

Having it turn into an addiction can be quite cumbersome in these times...

In any event the bike looks good....It looks like you left it basically bone stock..

I'm pretty much into full blown customizations myself...

Have fun in it and nice job getting it running/riding again..

I've mounted and run some of my many cags on the rims both ways......

Never had a problem...

It's only the X22 that has the frajeeley (fragile) rims..lol

Re: 7 months New to Pocket Bikes....

The rims are fine, but your tire tread is backwards, if you had slicks like most of my bikes it would not matter. What about your front brake disc, usually only threads on one side.
