    I've been slowly making my Huffy I got at the thrift store for $20 into a motorbike. This is what I have so far. I brazed a seat mount lower on the back to make it a little more sleek looking. I'll want to make a tank to go in that empty space but the black one should do for now. I'm attempting to make a headlight for it too. that's the metal on the ground there that I started to hammer out. .bld.

    It's coming along. I like what you did with the seat.

    I'm fairly satisfied with the seat though it does make it harder to pedal being so low.

    Maybe when I get it running. I still have yet to take it for a spin. I get sidetracked fairly easily. I should at least fire it up to make sure the engine wasn't a lemon.

    That's actually pretty nice looking, even the stock tank looks OK. Good luck with test fire.

    Like the seat mount work. Never can figure out why some motorbkers want their butt up in the air. Hope your gonna get a front break on it. IT"S NICE.

    While I like the looks of board trackers and might have liked riding one when I was young, for long rides I like sitting upright and not leaned over. Me poor old body can't handle leaning over laid out on the bike. When you're a geezer you'll understand.

    My joints are pretty trashed as it is already. So unless I'm riding a hammock I'm not going to be too comfortable anyways.
