    Hi, I am almost finished building my 48cc kit from spookytoothbicycles.com.
    I put it on a Schwinn cruiser from walmart. I will post pix soon.

    Welcome aboard. I live in Chandler and I'm still in the process of getting my 48cc 2 stroke running for the first time. Cheers

    Thanks ! My son works at the Boeing plant near Falcon Field. He and several guys in his shop are building the bikes. Also a friend of mine in AJ.
    I actually rode mine on Thursday, for about 10 minutes til there was a sudden loss of power. Found stripped head stud, resulting in blown head gasket. My friend stripped a head bolt just assembling his also. We went to Copper State Nut & Bolt off the 60 near Mesa Drive. 3 foot length of all thread for under $2. Monday I will replace all 4 head studs with the better steel studs, and get the gasket material from NAPA on Main. The bike sure was fun to ride for those few minutes though.
