Don't think merely swapping stems would work, but I could be mistaken,,,,,again.
Which greenline did you buy?? Been looking at them myself and wondering about how well the engine would mount up. No experience with Greenlines. Have you?
That's cool they sell an over sized one, if I knew that I would have got the 7 speed greenline. I got the single speed-coaster brake $149 w/free shipping one, from Greenline outlet. I had asked him if the forks he sold fit on all his bikes, but evidently they only work on the one I bought and the stretch cruisers. All the rest have larger tubes.
One thing I like about those Greenlines is that they have beefy wheels like a heavy duty hub and 12G stainless steel spokes, and that guy is really good to deal with, not to mention free shipping and the best prices on EBay.
This will be my first Greenline, but by the looks of the one I'm getting, it should be np problem......just a standard cruiser. I almost got the stretch cruiser, but want something a little easier to build this time around. There is some great threads on that Greenline stretch here and they are sharp looking bikes to put a motor on..........That will be my next bike! He's got those for $199 w/free shipping................what a great price!!
