    Hi today's my first day here and well my 3rd not so lucky day working on my bike

    From Van Nuys, CA

    1st project ever a raw motor 80cc (65.9? what s the deal about that anyway?)

    Originally i bought this almost brand new Schwinn Stingray to put the motor on it and look cool, I mean come on they are head-turners as bicycles imagine motorized.
    But as i took the motor out i came up to the disappointment of my bikes beauty but unsuitable differences well at least for a stock kit maybe with different mounts and sprockets but far out reach monetarily for now.

    So I went out to my garage to grab my good ol' beach cruiser and well the motor fitted with relatively ease

    Now i got two problems

    the bike had a wheel brake kindda took it out thanks to the sprocket.... that's going to be funny later on lol

    And my bike sprocket wont move... buts that's another thread

    Anyway just saying hi and please if you have a chance read my threads and help me out

    Oh and well hope someday when my bikes working to go cruising around Mulloland Dr with some fellow MB people!

    I'm like this now:-||I want to be like that soon xct2

    Hello Macia, Welcome to the forum .

    Even though I am the only one in this whole forum that has an American Chain Dirive, I had a great time veiwing countless bikes ,many that made me breathless. I also learned some very important things such as ; how a two cycle motor works,the importance of intake and cylinder gaskets, how to make cable ends(at throttle),and the power bike laws according to where I live..........yep, thats what they call them, "power bikes" any way there are some really decent people here in this forum....:):)

    Howdy Mac, welcome. Beach cruisers are awesome. I have never built with a Stingray but am told you can buy mounts just for them on ebay and elsewhere. http://motorbicycling.com/search.php?searchid=351491

    Wow, I read threw a few of those. Didn't know a lot of the work that goes in to Stingrays.
