    Hi all, new here, first post. I'm in Long Beach CA. I bought a Kustom Krusier stretch bike with a china engine/kit already installed. The guy I bought it from did a lousy job on the install and the bikes been ridden hard and mechanically neglected. Rode it for a week, had lots of fun and it's time for a rebuild. Not a full blown restoration, just clean and repair all loose and missing nuts and bolts with a few add-ons. Maybe a full blown restoration with re-chrome/powder coat later on down the road.

    I'm a machinist, I have a small work shop in my garage with a small lathe and have TIG MIG and stick welding capabilities at home too.

    I pressure washed the bike and completely disassembled it. Have lots of questions, and I'm wondering which category to post them in? I'll try to attach a pic of bike when I bought it.....Thanks!!!

    Welcome to the forum from Orange County.

    That seat really makes your Kruiser unique.

    I took the seat/mini sissy bar off. Bought a nice "wide glide" regular seat from the Long Beach bike swap meet. That long seat is off of a Harley.

    Welcome to the forum. We're glad you've joined us. Anything we can help you with, we'll try.
    We have a section for your style of bike here > http://motorbicycling.com/forumdisplay.php?f=40

    Personally I like the saddle that you say you removed. It fit the bike well. I know, from experience , that it probably wasn't the most comfortable seat but it sure looked good.
    Keep us posted on your progress.

    Have fun and ride safe.
