    It looks like Stunner may soon be relegated to second place in my all time favorite motorized bike list....

    Your springer banana seat is the kind of twisted, diabolical thinking that keeps me logging into this forum.

    The springs are getting an upgrade because my seat bottoms out on the frame... It could be the weight but I think it is because I didn't give enough clearance to the frame and the bottom of the Nanner...

    Hi All,

    Looks like a fun build and bike!

    Did anyone figure out a reasonably priced brake solution?

    Thanks guys!

    :)

    Manic, no one is fat until they are in front of a mirror or on cam. Then they are photoshopped. After that there is plausible deniability.

    I regularly fictitiously run for president. (yes of the US!)

    Your not fat! You are rotund and have an agenda! (all about the spin and I support you)

    I got my Cranbrook from Wallyworld. Been riding it for going on two years now. Build it right in the first place and as long as the frame is durable, like STEEL. then you should be just fine.

    The metal on this bike is at least 16 gauge or better in thickness so I don't think it is all that wimpy if you wanted to motorize it. What you will want to do is go through all the bearings and grease them up and adjust everything so it is right.

    LOL, spit coffee.

    Sorry Draco.

    In my defence, threads I start almost always deteriorate to discussions about pets, cartoons and amazingly enough bat dung. (not kidding; http://motorbicycling.com/showthread.php?t=40014 )

    I'll shut up and be over here. But man! looking great. Looking forward to seeing her when your done.

    More done to the bike which I am renaming it to MegaPixieRay, because it is a cross between a Schwinn Pixie and a StingRay...

    This is what a Pixie looks like so you can see what I am talking about.

    I still need to add some plates to cover up the unfinished looking areas plus much more.

    Put some bigger seat springs on because the other ones just didn't support my backside that good.
