    Welcome to the forum. Beach cruiser bikes look great with a China girl motor and yours is a very clean build. Will the Pug ride with you? I might build a side car for my Schnauzer.

    That cart is really neat! Did you build it, or buy it pre-fab? Close-up photos of the hitch/hook-up and how it's attached at the front of the cart would be appreciated. Thanks from a newbie.

    The cart is a beach fishing cart I got off of ebay years ago all i did was clamp a piece of bent stainless on it with a brass clip bolted to the end. On the bike i bolted an old ore lock to the rack

    John H,
    Thanks for the quick feedback & photo regarding your beach cart. That's a great idea. I don't see many oarlocks here in North Texas, but I'm sure I can come up with a suitable substitute. And as for the cart, I will probably be be building something like it, after my next motorized bike build. Be seeing you around the forum.

    Motorized Bike Parts

    Page to the right side of thid site and look for the stinger bee sticker on the motor thets the motor i got in the mail shipped fast is one thing I can say about them, and the emails/ communication was very good.

    Its my first build so I cant say just yet if it is a good motor let you all know after I beet the Sh!t out of the thing in the next few months! After blowing the motor in my truck this morning I think I will be using the bike a lot in the next month or so.
