Default Mike. New. Building a Skull Bones cruiser with a Piranah 140cc motor.

Im Mike. I just got into the bikes with motors a few months ago. My first bike was a white skull bones beach cruiser. I installed a 4 stroke 49cc engine from bike berry. From the day i purchased the kit i was not to impressed, however i gave it a try anyhow. The engine ran ok for a few months then started having problems. My buddy had the same engine from them as well. After a few months he aslo had problems. In my opinion the engines are poor quality knock offs. The staff at bike berry became such a pain to deal with. So now ive taken the motor out and am going to re build this time from the ground up.

I am going to use my skull bones frame. Im using felt 24" wide rimes. The tires are felt thick brick's. Im going to use disc brakes front and rear. Im changing to the springer front end. Also going to be putting on some ape hangers. For the engine this time i will be using a Piranah 140cc 4 speed wit clutch. I am makeing my own mounts for the motor that i will weld in. Once complete i will tear it down and have the frame powder coated orange. the wheels black and springer front end black.

if anyone has done anything similar or has any input or comments let me know.
