Welcome to Jake's General Store, Performance & "Race-Winning parts dept". of thejakebike.com.
We provide high performance racing parts, as well as the bare necessities. Our engines are unique. we have a large variety of choices- long-stroke cranks,(gt-40), standard cranks (GT5 style), wide mounts (for direct to frame mounting) standard front mounts (for adapter plates and stretch applications) we have the GT5 piston style engines(hawk), the PK-80 style engines(silver eagle), all with their own names and more, to keep us ahead of the pack! the Red-Tail GT-40 is unique to jake's. our own design culmination!
Jake is out of the shop until april 20. .
All shipping and fabrication will resume 4-2-15.
For those of you who are waiting for race engines, we will resume building this coming weekend in order of purchase. Your place in line is held!
Currently the race engine waitlist is 2 weeks.
Rough Estimates for those waiting on bike builds: Connie M. "boardwalk empire" (1week), Victor "JBMXcr"(4 weeks), Steven R. "jakebike"(3 weeks), Ed W. ("centurion"protoII, 6-10 weeks.)
New bike builds are 2 weeks waitlisted at this point for build start.
Try a high cpmpression diamond head and one of our mikuni Carbs. you'll see a marked difference in power! and If you REALLY want to see how these engines are supposed to run, get an expansion chamber exhaust pipe. It's truly the third point in the power triange. (carb, chamber[head] and pipe). We suggest a japanese motocross pipe, or one of our secret recipe pipes. We have 2 types of pipe. An entry level pipe for those who just need to get to work, and a big fat race pipe for those who want SPEED>
We also strongly suggest an HD throttle, and cable. We have done the research and legwork, so you need not worry about fit and function. its HANDLED! and what a difference it makes to have a solid steel heavy duty motorcycle throttle on your bars; your interface with the engine.
We also provide disc brake conversion kits, wheel and all. So for those of you still burning up your rear pedal coaster brake, it's time to make the change. they include a front wheel, silver or black, a new disc hub, the rotor and caliper, and a caliper mount for the front fork. A must-have item for the motorized bike!!
Jake's has many more cool items!!
Laid back seat posts for more legroom, top end power kits, High Compression Diamond heads, (which keep your engine just as cool as you are.) They increase performance and reduce engine fatigue. They are the perfect amount of punch for these enginesl! not too much, not too little. (we see a lot of blown engines from guys using super high compression heads from that fred guy- who's no mechanic, btw. and never raced a day in his life...(so make your own call on THAT one...)
We also carry ighting systems, filters, and an ENTIRE LINE OF BILLET SPROCKETS! we have 2 types of mounts for sprockets. the billet aluminum coaster clamp which doesnt touch the spokes, and the disc-hub mounting biscuit. Far better tailored to your bike than the first-gen versions that "kings" will sell you and not give any support (and not ship to you for a month or reply to an email) Our sprockets and mounts ship within 3 days* and are race proven. Our mounts and base-engines are used by our friends at Arrow Motorized Cycles as well.
We are a small company, and do our best to get you your products as fast as possible. Pleease be aware that we are not MacDonalds. No burgers are under the heat lamp. We are a high end custom bike building shop, carrying niche products.
Remember, Your order is YOUR ORDER. therefore, say you order a ported cylinder-- once we're done making the other guy whose ahead of you's cylinder, we wil begin making yours. Then we will ship it to you. Please understand that while that's going on, we are also building entire bikes for people. The point being, please don't place an order and then start emailing about tracking numbers and shipping the next day- it will be ignoed. We use PRIORITY MAIL, which is no longer than 3 days once its shipped, but we do have to make the custom parts, and that takes time. I recently had a guy get mad because he paid for 2-day shipping, and it had been a week... well, we hadn't even had the chance to make the part yet, so please, let us do our jpb and make your stuff- QUALITY STUFF- and then once it DOES ship, it will be 2 or 3 days. See how that works?
Stuff we have in stock, like sprockets, throttles, heat diffusers, heads, tanks, emngine kits, etc...ships within 3 days of ordering.
