    I just finnished my first build a Nirve beach cruiser with a Grubee starfire GT4 engine 66/80cc
    engine. It tops out at 32mph, and I've put about 120 miles on it in about 30 days. Its an
    awesome very sturdy ride. We are currently working on a Schwinn OCC chopper motorbike build
    and a custom 3 wheel bicycle with suspension, with a 110 cc automatic motor with a reverse.

    pics of my nirve bike, ignore my messy garage haha

    Here is my Nirve build, I did this 2 days after having all my wisdom teeth pulled haha (no pain meds). I bought the bike from a guy locally on craigslist... he said the back wheel needed to be replaced (it actually just needed new bearings) I rebuilt the entire coaster hub, new pads, axle, races, bearings, the works except for the coaster sprocket. Paid 60$ for the bike... not bad for a hand built frame. I got the motor off Ebay for 140$. I just finished making a 6 volt xenon re-chargeable light for it (used the shell for the bell light) It has a valve controlled re-chargeable battery so it does not leak. I plan on adding an expansion chamber to it, I want to make the engine a bit louder so I can be heard by motorists... hope you guys like it
