  4. Thanks guys. It was on its way to the new owner there in the pic so I won't be riding it except at a show/demonstration we will be doing of the last 4 bikes.

    There's no way around it; the Cranbrook makes a very fine looking motor assisted bicycle.

    And I really have found that low-end bikes are entirely useful if they're only ridden considerately.

    I want one. Maybe next spring I'll switch my motor to one of them.

    wow that looks awesome, i like the fenders, i'd add a springer front end on mine if I wasn't running the torpedo headlight, i just don't think it'd look good with a torpedo.
    I wish the stock fenders had the second set of brackets on there too like the ones u have.
     
  8. Its Funny

    I like to see people enjoy themselves cause I see people riding my rides (friends..I have'nt got all them on one yet) I was outside putting tresses on the new "motored bike shop" and I seen one motoring up. this guy really takes his out the back woods.HEH He flies down the trails, Logging acsess, river rds. anyway he was motoring up my hill and my bud said doesnt it make you wonder if you sell them too cheap and I told him I like to see people riding. He made it up my hill to his and others amazement with out a peddle. The WALD Fenders are really strong heck you could mount a grocery bar on it and get away with it.Oh the stock Schwinn Del Mar fenders are OK. Im still putting wider rivets in but they are 2x the area coverage than that of the CranBrook..Whos fenders are thinner but alright if you drill out and re rivet to a solid l braket! Some reason I had some perfect ones in my bolts box. Well Ride on.. 5300 miles on my 43' Army Messinger
     
  9. The front (second) Bracket for the Stockers can be had at your local bike shop or ory

    The front (second) Bracket for the Stockers can be had at your local bike shop or The Stores end up with extra parts and hardware and they keep them cause they'll find a home..Let this be an instant..Clall Them. If not call wald and order a replacement Bracket drill your own holes and WALLA. Oh and about the Springer looking bad with the bullet front light Ohh Id have liked to have a bullet light for this'en.
     
  10. Oh I Forgot to mention the jet 72 and incoming needle valve I take out to 1/16" with pliers and bit.
     
  11. Oh TA TAH Rivets went 10/32 machine scrws

    no prob with the bigger rivets on the cranbrook but I posted before I did the Blackioe. I ended up using 10/32" machine screws to supprt the l bracket all others were allready 10/32" m scrws on the DelMar Schwinn.
