Hey Guys I Planning On Placing My Kit On An Orange Moon Dog.. (seen It Here And At Wally World) .... Any Way I Seen A Blue One On Ebay And Like It Better Than The Orange One ,,, But The Tubes Going Towards Front Of Bike From The Back Are Rounded Towards The Inside To Where The Motor Will Sit ,,,, Any Of You Guys Got One On The Blue Moon Dog And If So Does Those Bars Going Downward Bother Ane Clearance Problems??? Thanx Guys

Hi Ronny, I have a moon dog. Engine sits well but tight. The plug cap comes up between the 2 curved bars (Is there a proper name?) below the top tube. Great bike. Looks great and the seat is awesome for a cheapie. Bike is really small though.

(the 2x4s in the foreground with the needle-nose pliers on top is my laser aided wheel truing device. works great except for the laser part rotfl)

I have a brand new Schwinn Southpoint, (similar to a moondog but fancier). PM me if interested. I am in Decatur AL.

Here's my "Blue Dog"

No worries for the install...in fact, easier than the Orange from what I understand.

You can see that I'm not using the stock tires...went to a Kevlar tire, a bit smaller, because I was having a terrible time with flats. I solved the problems, you can look on the "other forum" - search for "40 miles to my first flat", and you can read the details.

It's a good bike, but I'm investing a bit into it to make it more comfortable - shock absorbing seat post, and I'm putting a set of Springers on the front. I also changed out the hard seat...so that's about another $80 or so into it...if I had to do it again, I'd spend a bit more on the bike to get something with suspension, otherwise, it's a fine bike.

Good luck!
Mark
