    I picked up a Delmar at my local Walmart, as it seemed like a good start. Put in the Black Grubee jet 66cc, and after considerably more time than anticipated, im putting around quite nice. tossed on a Schwinn digital speedometer, and ran new heavy brake cables to the clutch. and its a good start.

    Im thinking about getting a better mount for the engine to level the carb, as well as move the seat back a few inches and paint it a 1940's era military matte green (keeping the whitewalls of course. Long term Id like to put a retro headlight and saddlebags.

    that looks awesome. im going with the same bike as well this winter. putting a zone8 80cc on there. race carb and slant head eventually. and some cool lights and stuff as well. ive sat on the bike but only for a second, is the seat nice for long rides along with the bars?

    What modifications were needed to bolt the engine to that frame?

    Nice build, My cruiser is a DelMar-no more I put a lay-back seat post and makes the riding much more comfortable, especially with the bars flipped.

    Cheers

    the universal mount from kings-motors. its just a u-bolt but it works. the engine sits angled just over the (now nonexistant) chain guard. the carb sits angles (working on a fix for that) but i like the low center of gravity on it.

    Can you post a picture of the rear motor sprocket on the back wheel. I want to see how you set that up
