Started the in frame tank and Ordered a new engine and accessories (chrome springer fork and hair pin seat) from Piston Bikes for the Huffy Nel Lusso I bought last night... Will post pics as soon as I start the build out on it. I think it will get a paint job in short order as I hate brown and will also lose the basket and cup holder LOL... I really wanted to get one of the Micargi Pantera GTS bikes but they want too much to ship it and the Nel Lusso looks quite similar and has that cool rack.

This is the steel version of the Panama Jack. The built in rack is awsome, I have a nice set of buggie cords that hide nicely untill I need them. The front rack.....your choice,,,, but the cup holder actually comes in very handy!!!! Just flip it to the front of the bars, not only does it hold a beverage,,, it also holds my little coil bike lock.

Have fun with your new build.

On topic, I just brought my Panama Jack home from repairs, (Band aid) Looks ok, will see how it holds up. I need to repaint, but it is just flat black, so thats easy enough. If this fails as well... I have plans for a streach cruiser frame.

On topic, I got nutton. It snowed again!!!! I grew up here in CT and can not remember back to back to back snow storms like this. No kidding, we ran out of places to put it. Hartford is now pretty much a giant one lane road. Let the dog out, ya can only find or know where she is by her incessant and never ending barking. I think she is just yelling "WTH is this?" lol

I installed a v-brake on the fork using a BMX adapter, and put track nuts on the axles. I like these a lot because they look good and hold way tighter than stock flange nuts. I sorted through my tool bag and got rid of all the junk that has accumulated there, and got a new spark plug.


If you still have the CNS carb, there was a thread covering the crappy air seal on those and a simple fix using sealant when mounting the carb.

turns out i didn't have the float in upside down (as it can only go in one way) so now i got no clue what's wrong with it. (f-ing CNS carb) just gonna order a NT carb and be happy with it.
