dave only likes nice bikes not crappy ones

i have all the parts for the frame including the hardware

i dont have the lights but they were just regular cev lights

i took it all apart cause it was kind of hard to fold and unfold so i was gonna replace all the hardware with stainless and grease all the fold points also i was gonna paint it olive drab so it looks like a paratrooper bike

theres no engine and i cut the engine mounts off which doesnt matter cause nobody would want a shitty diblasi engine on it anyway

i bought a little lifan 2.5hp 4 stroke for it but its like 1'' too tall so that didnt work oh well il put that engine on my rototiller

then i was thinking one of them chinese 2 stroke bike engines would be perfect but i cant afford one so it sits

the other problem i had with it is its 2.5x8 tires are impossible to find there is no diblasi distributor in USA anymore and the European distributor said they dont stock the tires

the new bikes use regular 4.10-3.50-6 wheels those tires are cheap and common so i was gonna get that size wheel for it

i can care less if i sell it or not cause right now its in a box on a shelf so its not in the way

i figured someone else might like an odd bike to play with
