    Hi Fella's, My name's Ray and I am from the Chino area in Southern Cal.
    The favor I need is for anyone who has seen or heard of my bike that was stolen a while back.......you may have seen the video on you tube, it's prolly one of the first with a Morini S5 engine in a cruiser frame. Anyways, here are some pics and the video of it....man do I miss it, everyday :(
    Thanks guys,
    --Ray

    Cool bike, sorry to hear that it got stolen.

    I haven't seen anything like that in Orange County.
    Have you been checking Craigslist?

    Can you post a link to the Youtube video?

    Yeah, cool bike. Looking at the positioning of the muffler though...Maybe the crook will cook something he's not supposed to and you'll get your bike back.

    That sucks Wrench :( It's always terrible when someone takes something that you've worked hard on/for. I do hope that you find it!

    Thanks Groove & Jen :)
    Well, it does fit close, but I never got burned by it :) An interesting thought though is that this motor is the older Morini with flywheel magneto/points ignition and if they were to give trouble (and the thief unable to figure out how to fix it) it may just get parked somewheres making it tougher to find :(

    Here are some identifying specs:
    The frame is a real Schwinn '82 crusier.
    chrome straight leg forks, like the old Red Lines from the 70's.
    the goose neck is a DK alloy.
    the throttle and cable are motorcycle, the grips are old black hex type rubber.
    the front wheel is special laced drum brake hub.

    hope this helps, thanks for looking all.
    --Ray
