Some more progress -

engine completed (kind of...) -


mounting it on the bike was not simple -



took a new picture from the same angle as an old one I had, this is before -



and after -



I had to see how it would look like with the tank and seat-





radiator needed a clean so I created atool from a pies of tin I had -





after installing the radiator and all the hoses filled it with coolant and got a little pool underneath the bike. Fixed most of the leaks now I am waiting for some more parts to continue.
Hopefully tomorrow I will get the brake caliper  seals and will be done with the brake system.

Be careful with the lithium battery!  I definitely recommend that you remove the foam around it. Foams are excellent insulators and lithium batteries (all batteries) must be able to get rid of the heat faster than it makes heat.

This is especially true for lithium batteries, as they can burst into flames at some high temperature where other battery chemistries will just wilt.  The lithium battery flames will be amplified by any combustible (or flammable) foams like the polystyrene foam you have used.

Please just zip-tie the battery to the metal battery box.

Or maybe just a small piece of foam to deal with vibration.
