    I built this one just because I've always loved old BMX bikes.
    This started life as a Schwinn Heavy Duty cruiser, but it totally has the old skool 26" BMX look now!
    The frame & fork are powder coated & I put one of my rear cylinder tanks on it.
    I also did a few hot rod tricks to the engine & I hollowed out the pipe to make a mini expansion chamber... (now it totally has that 2-stroke sound!)
    I hope you guys like it.

    I like the fuel tank. Where did it come from? How will you adjust the chain.

    Overall I like it a lot. Very clean looking, and still looks like a bicycle.

    Norm, you continue to come up with cool ideas. I love the old three bar BMX cruisers and even have a couple. Every once and awhile I think about dropping in an engine but just can't bring myself to do it to one of these rare and very expensive frames. Using a Schwinn Heavyduti is perfect! It has the look but with thicker tubing that will not crimp under engine mounts. A perfect idea. Now you need some blue or gold anodized rims, a tuf neck, and maybe some Oakley IIIs. Mind if I take it for a spin?
