My god, getting old and tired though- never thought I'd feel so tired and still a month to 60.

Near 80, rode in shorts,
typing this tonight with the window open, but it's 'sposed to turn cooler now finally-
been wishing I'd left the AC in the window the past 3 days or so.

Took these photos of the bike before I left- sure can carry a lot
the panniers are lightweight when empty, and squish flat to not catch much air
the trunk rack has that little water bottle pouch, which also holds a bottle of oil nicely when I go for gas.
50 cc motor on Huffy cruiser frame with 700c wheels, 32mm tires,
39 alloy motor sprock bolted to a flip/flop hub.
47 lbs. unloaded total weight.
a great little urban assault vehicle- and thankfully I don't have to take it up and down a flight of stairs anymore!

Got a 1" threaded Shock Fork I found on a trashed frame I think I'll put on this soon-
adds a little weight, but really makes a smoother ride.....

the front shocks make a real differance man let me tell you !!!! i just swapper out to a set of 1 in threaded hpr shocks on my cruiser and wow man wow !!! all the vibs and most of the bumps are gone !

nice sadle bags man i like that ! i run a rear rack and bag but cant seem to find a matching sadle bag setup, eehhh whatcha gonna do lol i have the avia rear rack and bag and it nice.

that thing must be awfull quick with 29in wheels and a 39t rear !!! what are doing 45mph ?????

ohh just so you know i have a nearly identical frame so .... that front shock swap will amaze you is all i am trying to say lol do it as soon as you can !
here to stay and compleatly insane ! deal with it lol
