Default Trike-Chopped,extended, flared 3' fork +schinOcc front,lowered, pad seat w/ back + EZ

Another project going is a really nice trike, we chopped it and extended it 3 feet, lowered it, welded in $200 worth of steel bars (chosen to match the look of the frame), and re-inforced everything. The front fork was cut off and welded back on flared, and the fork was extended another 3 feet, joining things in with steel pipe and several feet of solid steel inner core running most of it's span on both sides of the fork down to the schwinn OCC front wheel we welded custom grabbers for, and then welded on hydraulic disk on the front wheel. Coffee cup holders, custom handlebars, 5 lights, the works.

My newest bike is a brand new from Sears Schwinn Riverside, 2 handbrakes (center pull), BEAUTIFUL gloss black finish on the frame, front/rear fenders, and rack. We installed a new EZ Motorbike automatic kit, took some flat black high heat engine paint to the motor. To truly black it out in custom fashion however, we bought high gloss black to match the bike, and blacked out the tensioner and chrome sprocket with it, and blacked out a bunch of other kit and stock parts (stock was perfect except some of the bolt heads). We blacked out the mounting plate in gloss black as well, and stripped off the standard semi-flat black from the tank and re-did it in gloss black! I am riding over there in 15 minutes with the digital camera and I will post some of the pics online before the night is over.

Below are some custom shades of paint considering going on the new ones of these

I like to tinker with my motorized bicycle. Most recent build was a custom chopper. Great bike. Talk to you guys soon
