Cool Style for the generation.

Lorem! My name is Colton, I am a ska kid, have been since I was 8. Thought I would make a thread with a pic of my bike as it was when I got it, and then a couple throughout my ownership. I got the kit (standard 49cc kit from thatsdax) in september of last year. I put it on my '67 Schwinn Classic cruiser bike with original white walled tires (I will be so sad when I need to buy new ones, which I should do since they are bald). Rode it around about 60 miles a day every day that I could until winter hit. Had to replace small things like gas line, air filter, had to re-weld the exhaust because it busted open, then the engine blew because I started riding it about 100 miles a day the nice days after winter, when I was tearing everything apart I realized why my brakes hadn't been working the whole time, my pads were too low and so the were slipping and catching my spokes. a month later, a painful month without my baby (Skannabelle) and my new motor is here and I have a bunch of parts I rigged up from cheap car parts to minimize vibration. Bigger motor size, better mechanical understanding, and so much anticipation and excitement to ride again, and tomorrow it all comes together and I tear up northeast Ohio once again. Most of my pictures are from Photography assignments so they are on manually developed photo paper so I need to scan them in. I have a picture from when I finished assembling it for the first time. It looks a tad bit different now, I have band stickers on the gas tank now.
