Default Re: introducing the bairdco prototype cruiser.

here's a sneak peek of the bike with the engine mounted.

had to modify the front mount slightly, just 5 minutes with a grinding bit to get the correct angle. other than that, it was a direct bolt on fit. the production bikes will have an option of welded on or bolt-on mounts to raise the engine a little. the way it sits now, it's a 1/4" above the sprocket. it's fine, but i'd like to have a bit more room for a chainguard. it's got a 36t pedal sprocket.

the bars and seat are getting changed as soon as the parts come in.

wheels are Sun Metal Products (the company that makes worksman rims) with 11g. spokes, shimano CBE110 coaster, and a Sturmey Archer Dynohub Drum Brake up front.

on the complete bike package, i'm going to offer a lighting system so it's legal, at least in California.

when it's complete, i'll have a base model parts list. there'll also be extras. lots of them.

my camera batteries are dead, so i just have this one cell phone pic.

oh, and this bike's already sold!
