Nice! I like ones like that which have a shorter look than some of them. Looks a lot sportier that way. Glad the new carb worked out well. It's annoying as heck when you have running issues.

Thanks mr.mod! Yeah it had a horrible acceleration stumble with the old carb, and it was hard to start as well even after it was warmed up. Definitely very frustrating, but she's working great now!

the lack of a kick stand and a decent brake is the real shortfall of these great bikes. I built one for with my son when he was 5 or 6 and he quickly realized he wanted both features.

I just bought a weld on kickstand kit from GPS or BMI but I needed a left hand brake lever to simplify things for a kid and the kill switch tab prevented installation of a standard unit so I cut the perch off a CT70 bar and welded that on and added a band brake on the clutch. What an improvement and the scrub brake is still there so he can stop if the clutch brake fails (say the chain falls off).

Hey that's a pretty sweet little bike you got there! Cool to see another Streaker on here, haha. That band brake on the clutch is very very cool! I don't think I've ever seen that before, is a commonly done thing?

Either way there's a good chance I'll end up copying that design on my own bike, haha. I was gonna do a disk setup on the rear wheel but a clutch band brake would be much easier to rig up! Like you did I'll probably leave the scrub brake in place, just for making light stops and what not.

yeah the band brake was an overpriced kit from some go-kart place but you could totally make your own. its basically a clutch scatter shield with a cable barrel nut installed. You will probably also have to whip something up for a brake perch. This was for my kid so I didn't mess around and did a proper welding job. I'm the only drunken midnight test pilot in this family.
