    Hey, I have seen engines on e-bay for about $200. This sounds kind of low. It is 80cc is this too good to be true. Maybe it is a crummy engine. It is being sold by powerkingshop Item#270058984733 Has anyone had any experience with this guy.

    Hi , I got my 80cc from Kings Motor bikes for 200 plus shipping. The fit and finish is not quite as good as some and I've had to replace some crappy (low quality) gaskets but all in all I'd say the thing runs strong and I'm happy with it. I have put over a 1000 miles on it and see no end in sight . Its loads of fun and people ask me daily about it . The conversations are as much fun as the ride. Tom in VW

    damn. That is way sick. When I glanced at the price, I thought it said 200 for a second, but then I looked again.

    I need to make my bike look way cooler. I see everyone else's' bikes and mine is so mundane :(
  7. yeah mine's just all black...

    Major Tom,

    :idea: If you can't fix that bike, wear a funny hat. I picked up a Santa hat for a buck, the distraction will save you additional ridicule and humiliation. 8)

    Speaking of hats, and guarding manhole covers, we ought to design our hat like those Guardian Angel guys, or cowboy hats with stars. Beanies with propellers? Ideas folks, we need a HUGE hat for Tom, to cover that bike of his........

    I barely got up. I did the slow mo so that it looked like I was up for longer. I am sure you could do it, but I am afraid of dropping my bike and breaking it.

    Not too worried. I have the Cranbroke, crummy bike, anyway; also, more worried about my neck.

    If you can do one, you should video tape it for us all to see.

    Re: Wheely

    Dude....nothing 's wrong with your bike! so what if it was inexpensive...makes for a damn fine looking ride..one of my motor bike frames came to me for free...my buddy found it on a junk pile at a farm he'd rented. My other buddy, the one who motored the Cranbrook...peeled the cranbrook stickers off the bike...put em on the tank, and clear-coated it. Looks like huffy made a motor bike. He really wants to add a springer fork to his bike!

    ride safe & smile

    Ya, the picture feature is easy. Do not let it scare you. Click that Upload picture button. Re-size it first. I can help you. I have new hope in the cranbrook now. I might try pealling the Huffy decales off. I have already customized my fenders. I will post a picture of my handy work. When the wife is not around.
