    Hey guys,
    I am on my way with my project "Black Widow" and I thought I would share my experience
    with you guys. .weld

    I have ordered a Jet Stealth 80cc (or so they say) Gas Bicycle Engine Kit. From zoombicycles and a sweet black helmet with ghost flames (Safety first) along with a few goodies from Sick Bike Parts!!!

    I am putting the 80cc on a beach cruiser with modified front forks to make it look kinda like a chopper.

    So far I have stripped the bike down and sanded it, til my fingers were raw (to cheap to buy a
    sander lol) I now have it all sanded a painted.

    Can you guess what color the bike is going to be lol.

    So my motor should be here in a week, so stay tuned!!!


    Comments and Suggestions are always Welcome.

    P.S. I will post some pics as soon as I can figure out how to post a pic. (I all ready have them on my computer)

    Thanks to Fairracing31, I have figured out posting pics.

    So here is the first pic before I sanded it down. I'll show the finished paint job tomorrow,
    Seeing that it is dark out now.

    be careful with homemade forks like that! they tend to break at the worst times! along with the helmet you should also ride with safety glasses and a pair of gloves!

    That would look cool, but actually I am putting 26" on both back and front. But U have given me an idea......
    Mabe 26" on the back and 20" on the front


    I didnt think of goggles and gloves, I guess I'm not done shopping yet lol. Thx for the tip!!!!



    Thx for looking out for me bro. A really good friend of mine made the forks up for me, and he does excellent work and has been welding for 20yrs. So no worries!!!!


    I am finishing up painting today, and then I will post some more pics for you guys. So stay tuned


    thx White Wolf cflg

    It might be, I'm not really sure to tell you the truth.

    But I think it is a beach cruiser.

    You are more then welcome, thats what I am here for.

    I think what the guys were trying to say is that no matter how good the welds are thats a lot of stress for such thin walled tubing.

    It looks cool, keep us posted with your progress .weld
