    This is my third bike that I have made, these are addicting. They sure get easier to put together as I go. I like the green color, the bike is a "Moon Dog", and cost $100 at walmart. I got the engine kit and a lot of useful information and help from mike at
    I will be road testing this one tomorrow, if the weather is as nice here as it was today.

    Really good...the engine and frame look purpose-built for eachother.
    Man u guys are lucky overthere with that Walmart........don't worry,i'm just jealous.

    Very nice Wallyworld cruiser! Looks like a good 70cc setup, should be fast. Just remember to secure the muffler somehow (i've found less exhaust gasket failures once I clamped the muffler to the frame) and I've read here that the fenders are sometimes dangerous if their mounts not made a bit more heavy duty. Otherwise nice job. Should catch lots of eyes!

    Very nice build. Great work. You and Doc can now be the Mean Green Team. That is a cool looking bike.

    They do look nice and I gotta say that the welds are of a very high quality for cheaper bike. What happened to the original seat? I know it's a little stiff but I put a cheap seatpost suspension under it and that helped a lot. Fenders are flimsy but they haven't come off of mine yet. Course, I had 4 surgeries last year and didn't get much riding time in. All in all, I like mine though and hope you will be happy with yours.

    That is the seat that it came with.
    I replaced the fender bolts with cable ties, and the fenders are flimsy as you say... I just shaved one side of them with a dremel tonite to stop the rattling where the chain hit it.
    I am glad to hear a good review of yours, since that bodes well for mine :)
    Thanks :)

    I like that seat, too bad I didnt get one with mine, it matches the whitewalls quite nicely :)

    I have seen a lot of others and they come standard with the white and black saddles so maybe you could take some pics to them and they could get the proper seat.

    That's a really sweet looking bike!
    Very clean and professional lookng build you did on that. Congrats.

    One thing bugs me a little about most of the engines I'm seeing is the exhaust pipe placement.
    Doesn't that get a little "warm" around your leg or on your foot, after a while?
    Seems like there would be a better way to route that exhaust.

    Were there any optional exhaust systems available with that engine?

    Hey Pokerhelper, I just noticed, you ran your chain without the tentioner. Great! Maybe I'll try it again. Oh, is that a 36 tooth sprocket? Thanks
