    I came to this forum to share information on my 6.5hp beach cruiser bicycle. I'm hoping to meet new people and get new ideas for my next bike build. My name is Shane and I'm from California.

    Welcome to the forums and you will definitely find some good ideas within! BTW, what kind of speed are you getting with that cruiser and do you have any pics posted?

    I used the 6.5hp clone engine sold by Harbor Freight. I mounted a hydraulic disc brake from a pit bike on the front. The bike goes 46mph and the govenor is still in the engine. The only engine modification was a header I made. Try the links below to see pictures.
