    gday MotoBicycle Friends....
    Im In Adelaide and i will post some pics tomorrow
    the forum has been great it sorted out my carbie reving probs and vibrations too i cut the misses rubber mat for the mounts ....she wasn't impressed.... i am running an extra tank of oily fuel and cant wait to run it leaner it feels like it wants to go a bit more at the top end, the boost bottle will be good too...
    ive had to service my coasterbrake had a collapsed berring - wasnt fun lucky escape....: )

    i made my own boost bottle out of a small spray can and two brass fittings and some fuel hose, just fitted it and the power and smoothness is awesome :)

    Hi there Matty 67

    yeah that sounds like the way to go cheers for that.......ive also heard of people setting up their own NOS kits with small soda siphon bottles to the inlet manifold for that extra power.....for now though i will do the bottle and exhaust then see from there.....

    Hey rat rod
    ive got a starfire 66 cc engine, only just becoming happy with it now after i rubber mounted everything. After looking more on the net i should have got the skyhawk super rat, what engine is yours?

    gday Motobicycle friends.......here is a pic of my ride low but i would like to go even lower with my next one i think i need to look to Califonia for a bike???anyone selling stretch cruisers in Australia??

    Hey Matty67 Your engine is great ive seen them fly in my area with some mods and balancing.......it doesnt matter what engine you have i believe the set up is vital.......
    im running skyhawk f80 killer which is the 66cc slant head with mods- carb and ports.

    Hey rat rod, very nice ride. Your engine looks like the skyhawk super rat which has 2mm stroke more than mine and has bigger bearings, ports, carby and revs to 7000rpm instead of 5000rpm like mine. Yeh set up makes a big difference to enjoying your ride.
