    Just thought I would share a pic of my latest project. The bike is a 26" Kahuna cruiser. Bike is being done in a vintage ww2 bike theme

    Bike is powered by a 66cc china girl 2 cycle engine.
    Thus far I have painted the frame in olive drab and other misc parts in flat black.
    I upgraded the stock tubes and tires to heavy tubes and Schwinn Kevlar tires.
    Added left and right mirrors and designed a custom gas tank cooler cover.
    Upgraded the stock seat and opted to use the huge worksman cruiser seat.
    I have yet to install my rear rack in which I will be mounting two steel 30 caliber ammo boxes to serve as left/right saddle bags.
    I also have yet to install my windshield.

    LOL...love Hee Haw.

    Now I'm not one to go around and spread rumors....so you better be sure and listen close the first time!

    Decided to post another pic that don't include my mess of a garage. Got my rear rack mounted. Just waiting on my ammo boxes to mount to it.

    Ray, I may have some extra 30 caliber boxes in my 'shop'. I could bring 'em next time I'm up there.

    Just got them boxes mounted. Should offer plenty of storage. I think I may insulate one to use as a cooler. IMG_20180306_123634.jpg IMG_20180306_123608.jpg

    Does the cover over the tank catch much wind?

    On my bike the airflow don't affect it much. I purposely left the sides a bit short so air could pass thru fairly unrestricted. a fast bike like yours I would guess it would have a parachute effect and not work as well as it does on a slow poke bike like mine.
