Let's see if this works. Here's a link to my photobucket album that has the pictures:
<div style="width:480px;text-align:right;"><embed width="480" height="360" src="" flashvars="rssFeed=http%3A%2F%2Ffeed1045.photobuck loads%2Ffeed.rss" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" /><a href="javascript:void(0);" target="_blank"><img src="" style="border:none;" /></a><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" style="border:none;" alt="MikeStroz's Mobile Uploads album on Photobucket" /></a></div>

The frame is a 60's Columbia (unknown model), the fenders I cut down I think came off a Western Flyer bike from the 40's, the engine came off (I was told) a sidewalk sweeper, and is in almost perfect shape, excellent compression and spark, started on the first pull. I got it because it had a gear reduction unit and I knew I needed those holes to mount the torque converter, but what I didn't realize is that it had a spline shaft instead of the normal one with a keyway... I think I need to find either another motor and swap the crankcase cover, or a different crank... And the Motobecane moped is what the wheel hubs, fork, handlebars, controls, and maybe some electrics are coming off of. Not off of that exact one, since I actually ride that around, but basically the same model and same pieces. Any suggestions for the gas tank? I haven't found one I really liked yet.
