These pics are of a Huffy 24" beach cruiser I paid 15.00 for at the flee market. Also I bougt the 49cc moped engine at different flee market for 15.00. The transmission is off a goped a freind gave to me. The curved tube from the goose neck down was cut in half and weld back on 180 as were the lower half of the rear forks, cut and flipped. Motor mount installed, the frame was primed white. Then sprayed witn Krylon yellow-orange flouresant safty paint. After 24hr. dry time it was hit again with Rust-oleum clear specialty lacquer. I started making a fuel tank, but choose to thin a guage material. Weed-eater tank is temporary. I thought I will try to see if I can find a miniture version of an old steel beer keg to use instead.
