    I put the motor that was on my Electra Coaster on my 1978 Huffy "Good Vibrations" cruiser I picked up on C/L.

    Clay (foureasy) has been helping me out a lot with this bike and motor. He welded up the exhaust, motor mounts, and a layback seatpost.

    I plan on getting some tripple tree forks from piratecycles and new front wheel for a disc brake.

    Let me know what you think

    i hate those pink air boxes on the "speed" carb, which is exactly the same as the NT carb, except it doesn't say "speed."

    whoops. sorry. i mean, nice bike!

    Nice looking bike. I picked up a black Huffy like that early this summer, also says "good vibrations" on the chain guard. Now I know about when mine was made. Good. Seems like a well made frame and on the head badge says Made in the USA. A far cry from a newish Huffy made in China I got at a yard sale last summer... junk. The peanut tank actually looks right on that bike.

    I have to agree, the pink/ red plastic crap that comes on the "speed" carb is gargage, however, I have noticed lots of diffrences between the "speed" carb, and the NT carb. First is the channel in which the air/ fuel flows through is a bit larger than the NT, as is the slide. The second fuel shutoff is a bit of a joke, but the thing that upset me with the speed carb was that the jet was suppose to have a larger hole than the NT, it did not. I mixed pieces from both carbs on the speed housing, and put on my black NT "airbox", and have had more top end "speed", than from the NT. Not as much torque however. And I must add the bike on the tread is pretty cool. nice work.

    Actually Baird....the " Speed" carbs ARE different....slide is 3mm larger.....but I concur on the "pink" aircover....mine was black but those pink ones...ermmmm LOL....and BTW...the speed carb really makes a difference....at least on my bike....look closely at the carb...and you will see......black box.....

    How much did you pay for the forks and the exhuast? I think those items will help out my ride.

    Haha Very true. I wish my bike was running this good at the last race.

    The forks were 40 from piratecycles and the exhaust was 80 from sickbikeparts.
