    I have been using this forum like the library for a while and now I need to make my contributions.

    I have a cruiser style bicycle made by specialized that I have had motorized for about a year now. Chinese engine kit.

    My mods have been done over this past year. They are:

    8mm spiral core Accel spark plug wire.

    Champion e3 plug

    notched and beveled piston.

    cleaned out all casting fins on intake and transfers

    exhaust header is electrical conduit blowing into a pipe made for a moped that I got on Ebay with shipping for $33.00

    Run premium octane with a special blend of G-oil, Castor oil ,marvel oil, and thulene, naptha, xylene.

    laid back seat post

    roller bearing chain tensioner.

    Gas cap is a GM power steering pump cap.

    Still run stock gear ratio of 44-10.

    Rear wheel is a freewheel with 11 guage spokes.

    Changed my tubes to slime tubes and haven't had a flat since.

    No speedo, I lost it months ago, But I have no problems with traffic.

    Welcome to the forum. The Specialized Shark is a great looking cruiser and motorbike.

    I had been looking for a gas cap that vented through a small hose, like a motocross bike (instead of around the bottom of the cap and onto the top of the tank). Maybe I can make one with a GM ps cap.

    So far so good with that cap. I will post a pic of the bottom of it. As with everything, there was some modification done to make it work.
