Default Re: Wanting to build a motorized stingray in WI!

Welcome to the Forum! I built this bike (my first) off of a 1978 Schwinn Stingray frame this past summer. I now have just under 400 miles on the motor and she is still running very strong. I just repacked the rear wheel, cleaned the carb, re tightened the clutch, and put a new exhaust on the bike.

My Specs as of Nov 6th:

Frame: 1978 Schwinn Stingray Scrambler

Wheels: 20'' 48 spoke coaster brake rear, 20'' 48 spoke front

Fork: 20'' straight springer fork

Tires: Kenda 20 X 1.95 tires

Pedal Drive: 34 T front 18 T rear

Engine: Grubee Starfire Gen II-A 50cc (48 cc) Slant head, Rubber Mounted

Engine Drive: 11 T Front 36 T rear with 415 chain and no tensioner

Tank: Stock 1/2 Gallon

Exhaust: Spooky Tooth Skyhawk Expansion Exhaust made by Grubee (with about an inch to spare from rubbing the front tire)

Carb: Stock

Air Cleaner: Stock

Spark Plug: NGK B6HS (So much better than the stock plug)

Spark Plug Wire: Napa Fiber Wire and boot

Odometer Reading: 392.7 miles

The pictures I have posted are from the completion of the bike.
Tinker away!
