    Interested in using a 2-stroke engine on this Worksman frame any suggestions?
    *Since this is my first build I would prefer a kit.
    *Speed is not a major importance.
    *Would have to work with the rear drum and existing hand lever (wondering if two hand levers would work or are there other types of clutches available?)
    *I've seen some kits on ebay any other sources?

    I've had good service from my HT's. The only problem I had on the first one (of 5) was a blown head gasket. Since then I make some inexpensive modifications BEFORE I even think about installing the engines. You will need a custom made front mount. Nice bike. And I have a double brake lever...just love the single lever. I have a cruiser, and replaced the coaster brake with pads.

    I have a link in Dropbox, which I'm in the process of transferring it to Google Docs, so it won't have to be downloaded.

    An update:
    Refurbished a vintage long spring seat to use for this build to include a hand stitched leather saddle (it's amazing what you can lean from these forums).

    2 stroke engine installed and started on the second try ( needs a little adjustment...I'll have to figure out how to adjust the carb.

    Took it for a short ride and was very happy with it. A little too cold and wet up here in the North East (NY)
