    NICE! That's the bike I'm trying for my 1st build... (so far so good). Any special things you found out during the build?

    pretty straight forward build other then the down tube is larger then the engine mount space so adapter is needed, unless your engine is made for the wide down tube. You may be able to dremel out the mount for a direct fit. I like the HD (Heavy Duty) front engine mount, very solid - found on Ebay ($11).

    *Install front brakes for a safer ride.

    I lucked out and had the "Big U-bolt" adapter in my engine kit- otherwise, I would have been able to mount my engine a lot lower than what I did. So far, I haven't really ran into anything bad- might need stronger wheels...? If I could locate a disk-brake fork that looked "stock" and bolt up, I think that woould also be a nice upgrade. While I'm "wishing".... a good sprocket/hub adapter would be sweet.

    It's a work in progress, here's one in red...
    I'll update with a pic of an aluminum disc brake bracket that I'm going to use once I can get the front wheel I need

    AAARRRRG, Mindstorm! My favorite bike in my favorite coloooooor! YES! Do you mind me asking, WHAT is that mounted by the front wheel.... some sort of add-on disk brake?
    That bike is Stinking Cool. Have you done a Schwinn Aerovane yet? That's like my other favorite bike.

    Looks awesome! Suweeet build!

    That front fender is gonna try and kill ya. No kidding. They vibrate themselves just enough to go around a half turn and stop the front wheel dead. But you and the bike keep going. Don't end well.

    I really like the flat black, almost military look. Purty work!

    I notice Wally now only has the black bikes available.... Get one quick! It was an easy build! The only real upgrades to the bike itself (that I "had" to have) was Cranbrook Wheels and a long-reach front brake.

    Is the long reach front brake better than using a disk brake adapter? And can you recommend where you got your brake? I'm about finished with motorizing a Cranbrook, and I'm scared of the lack of a front brake.

    Sorry about the delay- I haven't attempted any disk-brake conversion on it, but I found a long-reach front brake set-up on ebay for fairly cheap- I searched front brake beach cruiser long reach and found it. I'm at work right now, so no ebay. The front brake is a BIG help in slowing down, so it's worth it.
    Hope that helped.
