    Names Chris but they call me Tank. I am a Southern Wisconsin biker, just tinkering around. Thought it would be fun to have an "old school" style motorized bike that I could deck out a little then bring it to club camp-outs and rallies for kicks. I bought a new Schwinn cruiser-style bike and a motor kit. I have a set of Harley-style hard bags that match the bikes paint and have chrome trim. They were small for a motorcycle but would look great on a bicycle.

    currently, just reading up on the forum info. to see if my question has already been asked before I ask for help.

    Thanks in advance.

    Tank

    Make sure you read treads about fenders and coaster brakes. We don't want to see you get hurt.

    Additionally, my daily ride is a 05' V Star 1100 classic that is far from stock. 39mm flat-side carbs, Boss 502 cams, Barnett 64lb. clutch and a S & S Custom Cycle Chubby Air-Intake system along with larger capacity fuel filter and petcock valve. I have ridden it to the threshold of the speed-limiter (110mph) and had plenty of throttle left. I'm not sure if I am worried as much about falling off of a motorized bicycle that won't be going more than 30 or so mph. Once you high-side at 55 and survive, speeds lower than that don't compare..trk

    Thanks for the response.
