Default hiya, newbie with a Dyno Glider

About a year ago I bought a bike from a friend for $200 who had become interested in motorizing. He made a few builds for friends, then built one for himself (now mine). At the time, he was also in school learning to do automotive bodywork, and put like 9 coats on the frame for practice. Thusly...

It's a sexy bike, but I've had no idea what it was until today, when I was doing some work on it. The crank arms were extra long, and I snapped one in half cornering when the pedal hit the ground. I'm finally getting around to fixing it, and I noticed an etched emblem on the frame that allowed me to identify it.

Anywho, turns out I'm in possession of a Dyno-Glider, with a 66cc Skyhawk, chrome straight tube motorcycle style forks, and Shimano Nexave IM50 brakes, and a red/black marble paintjob. I think it's going to be my new work commuter (3 miles). If I kill the china girl, I'll get a quality engine.
