Default Hello - New member and new motorized bicycle owner

Hello all.

For quite a few months now I've been searching for an engine for
my Nirve Beach Cruiser. After doing quite a bit of research I would
have had to do quite a bit of modding to get the engine to work as
my cruiser was a bare-bones bike. No hand breaks, single gear..and
so on.

My wife was at a store on Main St. here in Huntington Beach, CA and
sitting outside Jax's bike shop she saw the beauty you see in the pics
below. I talked to the owner and I bought the entire ride for $420.
Everything is brand new, bike and engine. There's only 36 miles on the
bike as of right now.

I rode it for quite a few miles today and it is a serious blast. I'm keeping
it under 20mph until I burn through several tanks of gas.

My first order of business is a bigger, better, softer seat and a rack for
over the back. After that some orange flames on the tank, and to start
quelling some of the vibrations and rattles (any and all tips are welcome).

Happy motoring,

I'll get some pics up when I become an active member.
