Hey I'm happy here anyway, so long as it's OK with others on this forum that my beach cruiser morfs into something else.

What I'm after is something like a 100-year-old street bike, not a board track bike. So it will have antique brass lighting, a truss supported fork, a layback seat, black wheels and spokes, white rubber and swept back handlebars and a round fuel tank behind the seat. The inspiration is an old family photo we came across of my wife's grandmother posing beside her brother's 1912 Harley street bike. I'l try to dig it up and post it on here.
That looks like 4 stroke engine your gonna use.
