Is there an light on that bike ? Looks like one in the picture . Im looking for one . Dose it run on the white wire ? is it kinda bright , bright or awsome ? try an fat seat . bigger tires , ---- i offten look down at the rough pavement with jagged rocks sticking out of it too . some rocks are loose and pop up .. i wear goggles .... i wish i would had went with that bike ... my motor would had fit perfectly ,, seems the mounts on most motors had this style in mind ... i will be ok with more modify
