    I just got a chrome & rust '62 Sears Spaceliner that I'm going to do a rat/steampunk theme with, and a Worksman INB that I'm going to make into a BTR type bike.

    I haven't decided what engines I'll be going with, but I don't think I'll be going Chinese.

    I'm blaming all of you guys for this new addiction! (^)

    You are quite a shopper. I don't think I have seen a motorized spaceliner yet.

    Thanks. I think it looks pretty cool and with the rusty chrome it would make a good rat or steampunk bike. I'll know better when I get it here.

    Now I need to figure out what engines I'll use.

    Here's one that has been motorized with a HT engine:

    I got a few parts to go with them too.

    The engine will go into the Worksman BTR.

    The antique fire extinguisher will be the gas tank on the Spaceliner rat/steampunk bike. The carbide lamp will be converted to a headlight, and the glass bowl fuel filter will look nice on it too.

    I also got a couple of NOS Puch drum brake hubs, one front and one rear.

    They'll probably go on the Worksman BTR to keep an old school look.

    Sorry Steve, I didn't see your post!

    The engine is a 50cc Motobecane. I like them because they look more authentic than a lot of other newer motors.

    It will look good in my Worksman BTR build.
