    Time to introduce we have been playing with Rods&kustom cars for the last 5 years. Gas prices have taken the fun away not to say weak economy. Im thinking I can fill the void in are lives with this crazy in a good way hobby of gas engine bikes. We have 2 cruisers in the shed we bought years ago thinking we would ride them yea right 1 mile max . In time they will have 2strokes on them and will be put 2 good use.

    Our first bike finished last weekend. 8 hours to install. Fired right up first time. So far 100% perfect. Used Dax 70CC motor. No complaints! Hope the rest of the engines are easy and trouble free as the first one. It was a real breeze.

    Its a great looking bike. I wish I could say mine went that easily. It wasn't the kit's fault it was my lack of knowledge. This forum didn't exist then.

    When you 1st posted the pic's I was hoping you would motorize the Huffy first. That is one nice looking bike. You might want to invest in the dual brake lever. It makes the controls less confusing at high speeds..lol. Great job!!!:crash:

    Use to live in VB back in the 60's, loved the surfing during the big storms.
    Nice cruisers for the deal. Welcome to the forum.
