Moped brakes, custom bracketry, powder coated frame, wow!
That is going to be one fine machine. You're lucky, Wyatt. When I was a kid we played with junked, clapped out Cushmans and spent more time working than we ever did riding.
Remember that oil and listen to your dad about riding.. Keep an eye in the mirror, never let cars sneak up behind you.
Stay off streets without aprons along the curb. Curbs wreck motorbikes.

Good to hear from you silverbear. Yeah Curt, I love making things fit nice and tight. Good advice Slogger, I'll make sure Wyatt reads your post.

Here's my last engine kit in another Kulana bike. It's a 24'' Makamaka cruiser. The engine has an automatic clutch and pull start that works great after replacing the rope with quality stuff. The goose neck was rusted so bad, I had to cut it off and the only replacement forks I had were 26''. But it worked out fine and accepted a moped drum. No exposed wires and my custom clamps. Currently listed on CL. I call the bike "Son Of Moondog".









Had to lower the price to $395 in order to sell it. Later that day I checked with the new owner and he couldn't be happier. Hasn't been off of it since he took it home.

Finally got Wyatt off his bike long enough to take a couple of photos of the finished product. I don't know how many miles he's put on it but it's his freedom machine. Sure beats walking.

Both front and rear brakes are from a 70's moped, probably a Motobecane.

The Moondog was down for a while until they got some better clutch pads and a crank key. It's back up and running. Wyatt's put some miles on it for sure. He's got friends to ride with, but he has the best bike.
