    Hello Everyone , Im new to the MB seen ,But have been wrenching and riding MOPEDS for a long while now.With the new Il law it looks like there will be plenty more guys/gals out crusing soon.I hope to meet some of you.

    Im currently building a panama jack cruiser with a 66cc grubee slant head,cnc carb.It should be done shortly Im taking some build pics to show you all .

    Y buy one motor when you can buy two :) so I plan on using the other engine on a mountain bike(more research needed here) that might be a while after I carefully build the Pj cruiser to my likings.


    Anyone in the chitown area (im out in the west burbs) want to meet up and ride or wrench give me a shout. I think its way more fun riding with others.fall season rides are the best!!!!!!!
    r.ly.

    Peace out ,
    Bryan

    I'm in Kendall county. Truck your bike out sometime and we'll go. I've been hoping for a riding partner!

    If you have any peds for sale, I might be interested in those, too. Heck, bring a ped to ride, I can keep up. And let me know if you need any build help, I might be able to come lend a hand.

    Welcome,Slowrollers.Panama,Jack isn't that a Huffy? If it is I would strongly advise you either change out the rear wheel or install a clincher brake.Those coaster brakes have a tendency to unravel under heavy use.Kip.

    A soild brake system is a must on any vechile.Most of the moped drum brakes are weak for as fast as they go (35-40mph)

    The coaster brake on this huffy stops as fast as useing your feet.... so a front brake wll be added
