    interesting that two of three the girls on this thread all have crazy in the name... tell you anything? I love the idea of girls riding and have had a few ask if I could help them build one...... But it takes a woman to ride one. So I commend thee for beating the odds

    hello,
    i may not be a girl, but i built myself a happy time bike and my GF wanted one too but shes only 5'4 and she couldent ride such a tall bike (24'' cruiser wit 26'' front fork and wheel)

    so i had to think small
    also she was afraid of my bike (because it looks so much like a motorbike my guess) and wanted one that wasnt as scary

    so i put together one with a 32cc friction drive bmx bike
    (soon to be high performance pocket bike powered friction drive)
    seen here:
    http://motorbicycling.com/f36/easy-friction-drive-scooter-29574.html

    notice the springer front end and seat
    its also pretty light and solid as a rock, much more relyable then a china girl.imho

    :
    keep it light
    consider the riders height
    centrifugal clutch
    friction drive relyability
    girl it up
    suspention

    I'm certainly no female but I can tell you that my GF loves riding on this bike and she doesn't even have to pedal.....

    It's certainly a good option

    HAHAHA Tom right you are on both counts. My Tillotson Rep based out of Chicago has a Female sales person that is about 5'4" and an absolutely stunning blonde Canadian girl (who happened to go to HS with Dannika Patrick and dated her brother) working for them and who is also a world class go carter and fuel systems mechanic. She absolutely smoked me after about 10 minutes ride time when we were track testing the Tillies a couple months back on the China Girls...

    I have a girl around the corner from me that rides one of my bikes all of the time and is wanting her own this fall. It is trying though with her because she really isn't mechanically inclined and is wanting me to let her use my shop and teach her all the way through the build. I an not sure there is enough beer in Dayton for me to get through it let alone share my man cave all fall.

    I have found the old Murray frames weak and brake at neck and seat post. Would suggest rewelding them before a motor goes in.
