I took my schwinn stingray occ bicycle and cut up the frame, rewelded box steel to it and put a honda gx200 clone on it, i've had this bike for a while, and i just bought a torque converter for it, i used to have a centrifugal clutch on it, but it would break all the time. the engine's governor has been bypassed, and it now has a K&N style air filter with a red foam prefilter. when i had a centrifugal clutch, i had a 35 pitch chain drive train, i always had problems with the chain being too small to handle the power from the engine, so when i bought the torque converter, i upgraded to 41 pitch chain and a 54 tooth sprocket. i am also doing a hydraulic disc brake conversion on the rear tire, before i had a crappy mechanical disc brake from a pocket bike. in the pictures you will see a stone between the engine and the frame, i put that there to judge the distance that i have to raise the engine for the torque converter to fit. after i took these pics, i bought some more box steel and started to make the spacer, i am using 1in by 1in box steel with 4 1/2in thick bolts, i am placing 1 bolt between the engine and steel, the mounting bolts will go through the engine, bolts, and the steel before bolting the the frame. i am only 16, and ive done almost all this work by myself. dont pay attetion to the camera date, my camera got messed up the oldest pics are from 2011, not 2007.
