IMG_4941.JPG IMG_4943.JPG IMG_4945.JPG IMG_4781.JPG IMG_4870.JPG I've been building these little suckers a few years started out easy and simple then my mind started thinking "well what would be really cool?"and I got it in my head that a Honda 50 type motor in a strong beach cruiser would be dope. I've been thinking and saving parts looking at bikes my friend Dennis sold me a pair of China pit bikes from his back yard, then a couple of years ago my brother in law gave me an old Dyno "deuce"with the geatest ape hangers and from these humble beginnings "Dyno Fink" was conceived
It's a little tongue in cheek and I dig Ed Roths art

Well I'm waiting on jets but it's like twice as much power. I have to take it easy it sure gets to 30mph fast.Here's a funny thing, the gear pattern on this one is the opposite of the little one so when I'm going from 3rd to 4th and I forget and hit 2nd WOW! Jeff how's that makeover coming?

My engine upgrade to a newer Brigg 3.5 is all I've done for years. Maybe I can find a place again to finish the Art Fish Cover.


Video in Mendocino National Forest OHVing I have to see if the saved video I have in memory can tell the setting on my SJCAM, as for some reason this is less jumpy video. Maybe it was I had been earlier used my bike helmet rather than the motorcycle helmet to mount the cam. Heavier helmet equals crummier video.

I just noticed it is the motorcycle helmet by the shadow shape, so I will see if I can find what settings were used.

When you can get videos of the bike of yours running, please post! I also noticed the seat looks to have a greater amount of cushion that most bicycle banana seats.

Well I don't know how to post videos but I wanted to give an update, the new motor is broken in and I think I have the jetting right, this bike is the one I dreamed about I think it's still geared low but it goes, my initial wiring job was hurried and I had the voltage regulator over heat and burnout the tail light,turnsignal and the battery so I had to remount it where it could cool and cleanup my wiring job. I took a long ride tonight and all seems good.I'm getting better with the shifting.When I started building bikes it was putting motors on bicycles this one feels like I put peddles on a motorcycle and I dig it

I have ridden an Yamaha 125 Dirt Bike and had to get used to the very low gearing. I noted that some times just letting off the throttle back to idle would skid the tire. I had to slowly let off throttle or pull the clutch in. Going down a dirt hill with loose stuff, I had taken notice real quick.

I never got too much into motorcycle repair or mods for gearing, just old one that had points needing attention. In days when it was deteriorating, I remember going on a freeway and seeing a minimum speed limit and the slight grade had it dip below 45 for a short while.

I saw this trailer, the middle bike Kawasaki Triple two stroke looked like the one I rode ages ago.

That thing is gorgeous nice job. Love it, if I were to build a bike like that I wouldn't change a thing. I saw a similar build in a tow yard near the beach in half moon bay. Wanted to buy it but missed out. Was that one of yours?

BTW how do you like those tires. I just put one on the rear. Do you trust em? How many miles do you get outta one on the rear?

I really like them they're 26"x3" the Dyno I started with was a "Duece"and it came with 3" tires.I've put about 150 miles on them so far they seem good .
I didn't start building this till May 2017 so I don't know about the bike you saw near half moon bay.
It's funny people ask me how much I have in it I say about $800 and all my free time for 3 months so I'm not sure, but l do know I don't want to build one like it for a customer.
I just want to ride this thing everywhere, it's so fun and the looks I get.

I thot playing in the traffic was a crazy way to have fun!

Venice your builds are so clean- i envy your tenacity. Once i get 'em together i never go back to paint, just start riding.
if i were not me, i'd be you...
