    Offset intake puts carb on an angle

    It is what it is. With all the different frames and ways to mount the engine a one size fit all never works. Same with the stock exhaust, sometimes I have to bent it, weld it other times they fit just fine. I recently had to cut an offset reweld and add an extension to get absolutely level carb.

    Handlebar mounted killswitch with key?

    Is this to keep a sibling or a roommate from using your bike? Since it’s a bike basically anyone can still pedal off with it.

    Anyone cut off their top tube?

    Related but different. I found a girls beach cruiser and cut the top tube and rewelded higher. People love the frame and it’s had no issues over 7 years. My old welds were pretty ugly but strong . The fenders didn’t last. I welded in a tube in the back for rear engine mount

    Piston tapping head no compression

    Recently had one which had wrist pin bearing blow apart and scored the cylinder walls. Rings were still good had no compression and the needle bearings were lodged all over the engine causing hard contact. Changed Bearing and cylinder and had it going again. But again you gotta check. It could...

    Huffy Cranbrook. To motorize or not?

    The Cranbrooks are ideal for an inexpensive build. Solid steel frame and 12 ga spoke offer a leg up on most bikes. Take off all the fenders. We just had a crash from the rear fender brackets breaking off. Check your spoke tension, check the grease and bearings. Get real brakes. You guys need...
