Default Re: Cruiser / street racers

Yes... they have headlights made from thrift store flower pots with 6v guts inside. They operate off the 'white wire' for a no-battery installation. For safety's sake they have no 'on-off' switch, so are on at all times when the motor is running. It really helps to keep those cars from pulling out in front of you, as the first impression when a driver sees it is 'motorcycle'.
The white racer really gets noticed, even in a crowd of similiar bikes. People get a kick out of the retro look. I've made a few changes since the pics. The extended steering stem had to go, as the steering was way too flighty, and it received a 36t rear sprocket. I like the new sprocket.

Thanks to all the nice compliments!
