Re: Longtime lurker, first time poster
The engine is a 66cc Black Flying Horse. It's 4 years old now and has been port matched, polished, etc. It runs GREAT!. The exhaust I made from a piece of flat stock steel and a set of steel road bike handle bars. The muffler is a lawn mower/snowblower item from Ace Hardware. The "ID tag" I made to mark the date I first started this motor. It is a tag for pets that you can get at a DIY machine at Walmart. Notice also that it says 49cc on it. Never had a police officer bat an eye when they have asked me questions. These motors are so small, how would they know the difference?
I forgot to mention that the frame itself is a 1970 Huffy Men's Cruiser. I actually called and spoke with a guy from Huffy on the phone and had him research the serial number. This particular frame was built and welded in the good ole US of A. before they moved production overseas. It was a yard sale find for $25 and it was a rusty pile when I first got it.
