    I've taken the 79cc pred off of my bike. I ordered a happytime kit from ebay that should be here before friday. I'm not entirely giving up on the project, I just don't get enough money coming in to finish the pred project. It's very costly. The HT will be bolt on and go! I'm far more experienced with the 2 strokes anyway, and I think they look more "stylish" on a bike. The HF build is delayed. But hey, 2-strokes are still fun and it sure beats pedaling! I will post pictures, after I finish. A happytime will have no problem living in harmony on the frame.

    I hear you, bro. I spent $800 on my custom bike, and that was cheap. Good luck with the kit!

    The pred will be worth it. it just takes more time. I don't blame you for ordering the China girl to get back on the road.

    Pred/HT build

    Exactly, I'm hanging onto the predator, I just want it on a different bike. I think a happytime would get along MUCH better in this frame. I also added a rear brake and I'm running a dual pull brake lever, so I only have 2 levers to worry about. I'm still as excited as ever, everytime I get a new kit, I get excited!

    That preddy would go great in a cruiser.

    Pred

    I'm a huge fan of the cruisers in general! I even install happy times in them when I can. That's also why I put these cruiser bars I had laying around on this bike, for LOOKS! Also, it's comfortable too.

    I had a pair of handlebars off of an old ladies ten speed circa 1970, and I threw those on my custom bike. Funny thing is, people think they are motorcycle handlebars (could also be because I have motorcycle forks though, but still funny). So many people think my bike is a real motorcycle. I've had people ask me what year it was and everything.

    Haha, that's funny. But they look GREAT, and feel GREAT.
