Default First Project

So my neighbor and I decided to build a couple of motorized bicycle cruisers. We went about it a little differently but both are happy with the end result.

Both bikes start with a silver Boy Go Fast 66cc pull start kit. I had a few parts missing in mine and I broke the clutch lever installing it. All in all things went together nicely.

We have a dyno with flat black, ape hangers, custom stem and a basic springer. The engine and a lot of parts were painted flat black. Uses mostly stock parts. Hardware was upgraded throughout though.

The silver bike began as a Migargi (I know Chinese junk) I have been reading the threads. I upgraded a few pieces and replaced a bunch of hardware. Other upgrades include a manic hub (This was the best upgrade to the point). The stock rag joint does not allow for quick tuning and is just pure frustration. I am a offroading, jetskiing, boating, car, truck hobbyist etc etc so the crudeness of the rag joint did not make sense to me. Also I added a high flow filter, ported intake, and have an expansion chamber exhaust coming in tomorrow. Other bling includes a bunch of chrome add ons etc etc.

First ride was a success. Both bikes perform great. Will be motoring around Huntington Beach.
