Default 80cc 1940 ZENITH with MONARK FORKS...

Hello again. This is one of my many builds that I have done,but I have used the same motor so it is my only motored bike as of now!
I used a very rare 1940's MARSHALL-WELLS ZENITH frame and a pair of beat up original MONARK springers. I put on some 3" rise Avinir bars with a pair of vintage AME TRI bmx grips. I scored a synthetic leather tri-spring seat and a brand new(looking) Schwinn gooseneck of of an old exercise bike!
I put on a set of 26x2.125 KENDA tires with brick tread pattern. This is the most comfortable bikie I have built so far. It get's up to 36mph & goes pretty strong still considering that I bought it May 2005 !
The only things that I have had to do are ...replace the magneto , carb & throttle cable ! That's not so bad for as old as it is!
