    Here is the next bike from LuftWulf...me,lol. The last 2 customers were big guys,so I decided to build a large frame bike for someone.It's a Schwinn Skyliner hybrid.It's single-speed now,Skyhawk 66 engine,Murray USA vintage steel wheels....the motor sprocket fits like it was made for it!
    Tires are Kenda Klaws to allow some dirt/sand action.They seem to end up at peoples beach houses where there are bike paths.

    They are bolted on with four hardened bolts/locking nuts.It can be welded though.the factory dropouts would tear out first.I cut them so they hug the chainstay.Same with the metal frame plate with the gumball...it could be welded in,but at the pric epoint I sell at,I can't spend a whole lot of time cutomizing.

    Cool. The exhaust looks like a perfect fit.

    Yes...the SBC pipe fit with no mods...just trimmed the copper pipe an inch and bam...it follows the frame well.
