Hi all. Pretty new to this whole motorized biking thing, but thinking it'll be fun. Started riding motorcycles at 16, now 41 years later I thought I'd try something new. A little about me personally. Retired 20 year Army Airborne veteran, now working in professional sales for a large fortune 1000 company. Life's pretty good. Wow! are upgrades cheap on these things compared to a Harley. I'm slowly working on my first build. The bike is a Huntington Beach Skull & Crossbones beach cruiser, flat black with red wheels. American made bike and really well made. Engine and bike were purchased from Jake's Custom Motorized Bikes. I've got the machined aluminum rear wheel sprocket adapter and just ordered the chain tensioner that another one of the forum members sells here and on ebay. Once it's up and running I'll upgrade the exhaust, intake and carburetor, followed by a jaguar cdi and fred head. Looking forward to surfing the forum for ideas and info exchange with fellow motorized bicycle enthusiasts. Cheers and have a great weekend everyone!
