Hello everyone! Names Don and im in need of a cheap mode of transportation and stumbled upon this great spin! looks like alot of fun. In this thread i will document my whole adventure of building my first motorized bike with pictures, statements, discussions, questions etc.
The Bike and its story:
Yesterday after finding this great idea on the web looking for a cheap car, i went on craigslist and looked for a beach cruiser as i love the look. I found plenty of them. Some way out of my price range when i stumbled upon a Huffy cruiser from 1999. frame in great shape new rims and tires just missing a crank and pedals for only $50 so i picked it up.
I Tore the whole bike down about an hour ago and have sprayed the body with a paint remover.
The paint will scheme will be a flat green with flat black accents.
SO far no engine has been ordered as im shopping around.
Stay tuned for pictures and updates!
edit: Engine ordered from zoombicycles. 80cc (66cc) Black Kit. 124.99 shipped!
What i started with. wasnt bad but so generic!
