    Hey Guys my name is Darick i'm 21 from tampa bay area/central florida. I started out with mini pocket bikes go peds rc cars etc. I currently have a 110cc pocket bike that had been stolen from me and recovered. I'm going to be looking into takin the motor and 4 spd clutch off that and putting it on a beach cruiser. As well as an 80cc ebay kit.
    Well theres my intro. I got my license suspended so motor bike works for me!

    Welcome Darick, when you get these together, make sure that they're totally legal and that you have all the proper lights and reflectors and everything, cops seem to hate bicycle riders for some reason, and always harass them. They have been writing tickets like crazy in my town for not having lights and reflectors at night.
    hello tangent! anyway welcome here, enjoy, read on.

    working brake lights and blinkers get into legalities, where depending on where you live, you have to register your bike with the dmv and stuff... some times people run into vin problems too. I am just going to have blinking red lights on the back.

    yea I dunno, I cant register anything but it is florida. I was told by the dmv that as long as it still has peddles on it that the motor will just be "peddle assist"

    Registration can be done! You have to show proof its 50cc or less, froof it cant go over 30 mph, under 2 hp, pedals that assist, single speed. They will put u in a moped class and creat you a vin. #.

    Wow,
    Didn't know there so many of us in close proximity.
    I'm in Land O' Lakes just North of Tampa 20 miles East of New Port Richey.


    What do you all ride???
    I am building a fully suspended chopper with 5 speeds and a home made jack shaft.
    You guys meet Jim of Creative Engineering in Clearwater yet?
    He's the guy who sells the clutch actuator upgrade kit for $27.95.
    He's also working on an upgrade that will allow an HT motor to rev past 10,000 rpm and make 3 times the horsepower. With that upgrade and my gearing & multiple speeds, I'm thinking the 65-75 mph barrier will be attainable.

    Brett, no offense intended, but you are crazier than a bedbug. Good luck.
