What's up guys, I'm from Tennessee and I currently have 3 motorized bikes. Avenger 85, wildcat 80 and a bike berry 80. I've put a lot of work in the avenger85. Top speed as of now is 49 but plan on getting a better carb soon. Already have the CDH67 pipe and olyn head, cdh power 12g rims and alot of other things.

Welcome to the forum!!

Those are some good looking bikes! I've always been a fan of beach cruisers. (^)

There's lots of good information posted here, & plenty of knowledgeable people here to help if you have any questions.

I also concur with Jerry... (I don't see any brakes at all on the blue bike).
It looks like you removed the coaster brake arm on the rear wheel... (that's a big no-no & will cause a catastrophic failure)! o_O

Yeah that's the last thing I have to do is brakes, well actually I'm getting a new rear wheel soon for it and put rim brakes front and rear, thanks
I used rim brakes for years on the LandRider. The main thing about them is don't cheap out on the pads. When it comes to brake pads I've always considered my life worth the extra money.

Yeah I'm getting the eagle ones
My personal preference is Kool-Stop. I like using electric compounds.


Though I have disc brakes on my current bike the Sidewinder; the e-electric pads have held up great for 3 years now. The stock pads that came on the bike were used up in 3 months. By the way, I'm 250 lbs and live in a mountainous region of the USA; can easily hit steep downhill/long grade speeds of 45+ mph.

Well I put the pz20 carb on and can't seem to get it to idle. And when I take off there's a slight hesitation before it will go. What am I doing wrong?? But after the hesitation it will run good but will not idle. Tried messing with the idle control screw, checked for air leaks. Maybe I should.changw the jets??
