    Hey everyone,

    I just finished my Mongoose conversion to a motorized bicycle. (c)

    This thing is only 70 pounds full of fuel. rotfl

    It even has a locking gas cap! :p

    So, what do you think?

    Locking Gas Tank Cap With Key

    It is a scooter gas cap but it fits our HT tanks very well.

    I also like the fact that no one can put the wrong fuel in it unless I give them the key! (^) :D

    :D Thanks everyone for the thumbs up on the bike.

    Here is what it looked like before the modifications to make the motor fit. :ride2:

    I honestly didn't know you modified the frame until you said something. usually that means you did a good job :)

    Good job on retooling the rear suspension to accomodate the engine. It's easier to find a deal on a used full suspension bike than a hard tail in a lot of places.
    I have a Mongoose Zuma that I plan to motorize one day. It's an aluminum framed beach cruiser. Cheers
