    2 stroke mix solved?

    I haven't posted here in a long while, but I just saw this on toolmonger.com Toolmonger Blog Archive Only Mix As Much Gas As You Need Built in gauge for figuring out that oil/fuel mix, no matter how much you have

    Vintage style chopper

    Hard to believe it's the same frame. Although this one looks even more shoe-horned in!

    Puch powered bike

    I think (besides mopeds) the only reason for their thread is to cuss ;)

    Puch powered bike

    Do you have any more images, or a link to some, of that bike you just posted? Definitely curious how the owner set that one up.

    Vintage style chopper

    That's....interesting to be sure. Your attention to detail, and clever use of off-the-shelf hardware to fab parts is really cool. Scary lack of brake power, but must be a fun ride. My only comment would be that IMHO it'll achieve that boardtrack look more if you drop the vintage headlight, flip...

    Ridley Vintage Bicycle

    Re: Ridley.. anyone seen these? Apparently someone has snapped a picture of some Ridleys in the flesh. It's definitely a FELT MP with what looks like a brass gas cap Vintage on Flickr - Photo Sharing! Maybe they're working together. Maybe the engine even has a warranty!!

    springer front forks

    I doubt anyone would go to the trouble to make new ones. How about a vintage one? A quick google image search produced this. You can get the whole bike (ladies, sorry) with the fork you're looking for attached here: Barney's Bicycle Interesting geometry. I wonder how it rode?

    springer front forks

    I thought it was the other way around. The Schwinn type is a girder, and the Monark (Crossbow) is a springer. At least, it is if you search Google.

    springer front forks

    I saw one of the cheaper springers on my way to work this morning... covered in rust. The cheap ones are not plated well, and will succumb to the weather more easily than a quality one.

    Quick questions about my engine!

    Nice motor mount, did you fabricate those? You may have a secondary income if you want to sell those here.

    Ridley Vintage Bicycle

    Re: Ridley.. anyone seen these? I'm not sure how credible these guys are... they've lifted their website photos directly from the FELT website, and have photoshopped the engine into place, and in some cases, the gas cap. Felt Bicycles 2008 if you look at Ridley's outdoor product photos...

    Ridley Vintage Bicycle

    It looks like they have taken 4 cruisers built by FELT and added a chinese engine and a gas cap (in photoshop) and are charging $2000 smackers for them. Anyone know anything about the company? Ridley Vintage Motorbikes : Models

    Alternative engines

    Thanks for those links technocyclist! I am getting excited about an alternative powersource. That little boxer twin is cool, but pretty wide. And those spark plugs! I saw a video on youtube that inspired me to look up Motomorini. They have quite a selection of nifty 50cc engines. Morini...

    Alternative engines

    I'll have to look for some online service manuals for some pre-purchase data. The sachs engines seem to be pretty plentiful on ebay in Europe. If anyone has any other recommendations please let me know.

    Alternative engines

    Has anyone on the forum had experience using a 50cc Moped engine on a bike? I was looking at some Sachs engines and they are much better looking than most Chinese ones.
