Default Re: Another new guy...

Thanks for the sage advice... Cool avatar, too!

I've been searching craigslist and garage sales for cruisers for a while now without any success. Seems that folks in this part of the wold are pretty proud of their vintage bikes... Maybe I'm just not looking in the right places.

I've got a two-week window where I'll have free evenings to work on this project. Not one to be overly patient, I came home from town today with a Huffy Nel Lusso. Now to order the engine kit and research handle brakes... You're correct - I'm looking for a 2-stroke.

I live too far out in the country for a motorized bike to be practical transportation, and I don't expect my bike to get used on a daily basis but I like to tinker and build. This project will be my stress-reliever when I'm burned out from working on my airplane or my truck.
