    Hello All,
    I'm a newbie to this form and on my way to building a motorized bike.

    I'm using a huffy cruiser frame that has been re welded to be unique. (is still in the welding shop, pics tonight).

    For engine I am using a Raw Racer 66cc:

    The question I have is I'm wanting to change the stance I sit on the bike similar in pose to the light-cycle from TRON.

    I DO have access to welders of all kinds, engine shops, and am tool handy. I'm just not knowledgeable what is possible, what seats are available, and what can be done with handlebars and all that jazz. One idea I had was using a longer seat, such as on a motorcycle :https://www.google.com/search?q=caf...UICSgC&biw=1517&bih=708#imgrc=fX9hnJlA_uB6QM:

    And then using custom drop handlebars, but I think this is a far fetched design and need some more experience input on execution.

    There's concept road bikes with fork-mounted handlebars. Here's an 83 schwinn.

    That 83 Schwinn may be great in the velodrome but I would not ride it on the cracked and cratered streets where I live. I had a nice fixie a few years back but I used bull horn bars.

    Thanks for the replies.

    That's my bike with the black.

    What type of seat is on that blue bike?
