This is the first time I have used a forum. Hope I don't screw up to much.

I built a beachcruser last year, and had a ball with it. It, (the build) went well except I tried to get away with not using a chain tensioner. I couldn't balance the tension on both chains so I bit the bullet and hooked up the tensioner. Now all is well in bikeworld.

Some of my other progects are:

1946 harley flathead chopper with belt drive and triumph preunit transmission. Did 100% of the build myself. A little crude but it turns heads.

1918 Model T Woodie truck restoration and rebuild. Now running, but I lost interest.

1979 Honda CBX 6 cyln 100 % stock (factory 105 HP engine). Way ahead of its time

1981 Harley XLS roadster sportie. Original paint and runs great. it was one of the AMA featured bikes at Mid- Ohio 2 years ago.. I got to spend an afternoon with Willie G Davidson. A great time

My latest project is a sick kit on a new schwin 21 speed mountain bike. I will only use the 7 speed de-rail system. It will have a Chinese 80cc, (really 66cc), engine. I also got a sigma speedo for it.

Hopefully I'll have this project done in the next couple of months and will post some pics.

Hi to everyone and I hope I can be helpfull on the forums.
