    Hello all,

    So I new member here but ive been stalking a lot of your guys builds/bikes/collections. So i decided to build a Motorbike taking in all that this forum has to offer... Trust me I feel like ive read all your post haha...
    so quick stuff.

    name: stephen alvarez
    location: Camarillo, California

    The bike I am going to put together is a stretch beach cruiser
    So i started off tonight by purchasing some quick things off of amazon.

    1. bent schwinn style springer fork
    2. Sturmey Archer XL-FD Front Drum Hub 36h
    3. Sturmey Archer S30 3-Speed Internal Hub - 36h, 18T Cog, No Brake

    and tomorrow i will be purchasing a Schwinn legacy taking it completely apart. to sand and paint.

    things soon to come.
    80cc motor
    jackshaft kit
    rims
    custom lean back seat post.
    MRS DIY fuel tank (I plan to add sight gauge on to the bottles)
    upgrade chain
    exhaust expansion chamber
    lights

    so i plan on painting the frame old ford blue which looks like a bright blue, the engine will be painted blue with the head being Chevy Orange. the rims will be orange spring chrome seat post possibly orange and cables orange.

    oh.. also i plan on making a kind of suicide shifter.

    so there u have it.

    Stephen Alvarez

    Yup, it sounds like a neat bike. You'll need to keep us posted.

    I look forward to seeing it man! I am still on the fence if I wanna do a raw build or buy a bike and enhance it over time.

    I was too... Im pretty handy with a wrench and a hammer. Plus I love knowing how the thing im riding works. Either way almost about the same. But for me i want to have alot of custom parts so it just makes more sense. Than paying alot and also adding things over time...ie sturmey archer front brake hub 3speed hub and jackshaft kit
