    Hey gang. I have been lurking here for a little while now. I started my project around Halloween time last year. Just an hour here, an hour there when I have had spare time in between my real jobs. Anyway, now that it is becoming something that I can actually start to ride, I figure I would introduce myself. San Diego is such a beautiful city with great weather, I am sure there has got to be others that cruise around this fine city on a regular basis. Let's meet up, etc. There are still many details to work out on the bike, but, I will sort all of those out while I am breaking the motor in.

    I won't bore you with long paragraphs detailing how or why I did things, rather a list to give you and idea of the time and effort I put into this project. I dubbed this project "incision", since the first thing people say when they see it is, man I sure hope you don't crash, you're gonna F yourself up with all of them spikes you got on there, lol.

    *vintage schwinn frame
    *H2 two stroke motor
    *welded on brackets for modern V brakes
    *welded in modern bottom bracket so I could utilize a SBP shift kit
    *billet aluminum chain guards for the SBP kit
    *custom bracket and cable noodle that bolts onto SBP mounting frame. Clutch cable lines up with arm.
    *almost all bolts swapped out for stainless socket head hardware
    *machined spike end caps for all bolts, valve stems, handlebar ends
    *exhaust cut and bent to flow with frame
    *front suspension fork
    *internal tabs welded on fork to limit steering to 50 degrees in each direction
    *steering lock to prevent steering
    *handcuff style lock for rear
    *hitch pin style lock for front wheel
    *alarm
    *custom 3000+ lumen quad P7 headlight system off of my road bike
    *rubber and billet aluminum grips, billet paddle made for left side grip shifter
    *custom phone/gps mount
    *custom control boxes. Right side - kill toggle switch, starter pushbutton, ignition key. Left side - turn signals and horn
    *12 volt 130db diaphragm horn
    *most all visible cables run through frame
    *custom air filter
    *steel braid fuel line with mini glass filter
    *diamond/wedge style mirrors (made 1.5" inch extenders as well)
    *modified double kickstand (extended width of legs for even more stability)
    *electric starter (took up most of my time with R&D. Took three prototypes to get it right)

    Things that still need to be done...
    *teardrop/coffin style tank, just shy of two gallons, with locking aviation style cap (75% done)
    *charging system
    *rear compartment to hold battery and tools, etc
    *brake switch
    *rear lighting and turn signals
    *comfortable seating option
    *mini fairings to cover front sides
    *paint
    *engraving emblems
    *boost bottle? (hidden up under gas tank)
    *make as quiet as possible (not worried about this until after broken in)
    *maybe an airbox, if the intake is too loud
    *centrifugal clutch? (I'll decide while breaking in the motor)

    I know there are quite a few things that I forgot to mention but will touch base on those later. Anyway, great forum you all have going here. Hope to meet up with local cruisers sometime soon...
