Default New guy, 1rst build in Mich.

I have enjoyed this sight from the moment I discovered it.
Last month I bought a 2 year old "Rico" 68cc kit from a friend who started to install it on a bike but ran out of steam. I bought it for $100.00 but found there were a few missing parts.
About 15 years ago I bought what I think is an old Huffy, and back then this same friend had restored it for me. It had very little use but seemed like the perfect frame for a motorized bike.
I have been to this sight several times in the past month and gleaned alot of knowledge and thought the least I could do was to introduce myself and show off the project.
The first 3 days were short drives and alot more working out bugs but yesterday I was able to take a nice 5 mile cruise and all the bolts are still tight!

Welcome to the forum. That cruiser frame might require a custom front engine mount due to the curved down tube. Check out the 'Mounting' section for lots of good information on that topic.
Have fun, ride safe.
