    Hello! Just bought this cruiser one hour ago. It will turn into a 60 cc motorized bicycle. It will hopefully be done around easter. Anyone that have had some experience with this bike?

    Test fitted an old engine just to ensure myself it will work:

    I don't have any personal experience, but my LBS uses them to conduct bicycle tours in the summer and swears by them. They do take a pounding.

    I like the padded bike look. You just need to cover yourself in bubble wrap when you ride it.

    Then there were: [​IMG]

    Then after some argue with the rear sprocket a front rack is test fitted, need to adjust the fittings but that's no big deal.

    Fix some fittings, fuel hose, electrics and a shortening of chain before startup!
    Will have to wait till sunday.
