    Hello my name is Travis I'm from a small town in oregon and just recently built my bike, i have a 26" torker beach cruiser that i put a 66cc flying horse angle fire on. The motor runs fine once I was able to correct my fuel/oil ratio. lol

    Howdy and welcome to the clubhouse! Look's like a fine ride you've got........too bad you can't utilize the 'fuel tank' already built into the frame!

    I'm going to try and utilize the "fuel tank" but might just get a new frame. I had the front motor mount studs snap on my yesterday july 16th while i was in the middle of a bridge. that was fun. luckily it's still a bike and i was able to peddle to where i was going, i got that taken care of today. I drilled out the broken studs and replaced them with grade 10 automotive bolts, i'm going to eventually get the rear mount (probably monday). it is indeed a fun ride, still working out some of the little kinks here and there i can't wait until i get it to where it won't break or rattle and vibrate a ****load.

    just did a bunch more searching and found out it's a Torker Bermuda. It's discontinued but that's okay because most of my plans for upgrades are aftermarket anyway.

    I hope the bridge you're referring to isn't the two lane curving trestle bridge over the Columbia! I've crossed that one in a car, but doing so on a bike would be intimidating.....
