    Aloha!
    I am a new one, live in Redding CA and love my Beach Cruiser! It has been great riding it! I am originally from Hawaii, and have lived in Redding for ten years. I am in ham radio, and love dxing. Haven't fished for awhile, maybe I can get back into it later....Hope to chat with you in the forum!

    Thanks, Dave

    Welcome Dave.
    You've found the right place to share this hobby. Lots of help, advice and good ideas floating around here. How about some pictures of your cruiser?

    Thank you for your reply. I have been trying to upload a pic, but it keeps failing. Not sure of the problem.

    Welcome aboard HB!

    Gosh I got a pile of ham gear piled up in various places! lol
    haven't used it in a loong time.
    maybe I should dig it out and see if it still makes sparks!

    I'd like to use my MAB for fishing off the coast, 25miles away, this summer...
    The prob is, one big hill. lol
    With gearing to pull up, I'd be stuck over-speeding going down the other side.

    I should build a shifter bike, or go with a 4 stroke engine, I guess...

    So, have you mounted a ground plane on your MAB???

    Best

    Howzit to both of you! Thanks for the reply! It would be knda neat if I could mount a screwdriver on the back end, huh????? CQ?!? DX!!!

    I can't get the avatar to upload....... it keeps failing.... the screw tool to remove the clutch should be arriving today, I'll let you know the outcome. I have been doing some reading on clutch adjustment, and it is not continual, but it has sounded like gears have not been meshing properly......
    A hui ho!cvlt1
