North Bend, Or,
Of all your bikes I really like the first one and the Sunbeam Opafiet '60', The Sunbeam is very tasteful and refined, a true metro commuter.

In a similar vein I'm restoring a 1958 J.C. Higgins lugged 3speed made by Steyr, with an otherwise stock 48cc, HT engine. But it's getting a smaller more efficient carburtor, a China made clone of the VM12 that the Yamahopper and PW 50 use.

This one is very nice to drive, 60cc top speed 50kmh, but, the nicest ride :) is around 30kmh

Renovation project! The KTM bike I built was not so fun :( So it will be a conversion to a slightly more modern style of a bike, the 50cc engine will be removed, instead 66cc will probably be more fun to ride (the frame is not finished!)
