This was the first time working with these bikes and didn't really know any better, so bought a Lifan 70 auto 4 speed for it. I have the original engine which is very tired and has a stripped kickstart shaft which I will be tearing into eventually, and possibly put back into the bike.

I had to replace the gas tank and bought this one on ebay, The seller had painted it the Green and white. Not a fan of the shade of green but he had done such a nice job on it, that I decided to just paint the frame to match.
I bought a small buff motor from Eastwood. The trick is to sand the parts the best you can first. I think I used 320 grit and then use the buff wheels. Stiffer wheel with coarse compound and then softer wheel with fine compound. Doesn't take too long to make them look nice.
