    I live in Bluffton, SC and my wife saw this bike locally on the internet for $50. I looked at the picture said buy that I'll go pick it up tomorrow. If the thing starts it will be worth $50. Of course the add said "A little TLC needed." Oh ya it needed some work for sure.

    It a 49cc 4 stroke with centrifuge clutch on a Huffy beach cruiser.

    Frozen clutch, fuel line leaking, kill switch didn't work, pedal fell off and everything needed to be checked out.

    In the end I have it running well I think.
    $6 for a new bushing.
    Spark plug, fuel line, clamps $5
    $34 for front and rear brake.
    $19 for a Kick stand
    $50 for the original bike.

    About $110 for the whole set up. Can't seem to put a picture on this thread but at the end of this thread there is picture of the bike. http://motorbicycling.com/showthread.php?t=62417

    Looks like you got one heck of a deal!!

    Thinking that my next 'project' may be an electric bike.......I think I've about maxed my current build.

    I'm originally from South Carolina; it's a great state to ride in.
