    I finally finished my 2nd build last weekend!

    Based on a March 1960 Schwinn cantilever frame with the rear triangle stretched 5 inches, a Comet CVT, and a GX200 clone engine.

    I originally started to post about it in detail in the "2012 In Frame, 4-Stroke, Build-Off" thread but wasn't able to finish it by the deadline...

    Here are some photos of it finished, and If you're interested I do have a very detailed step by step build story available on my Tumblr blog:

    Mr B., it worries me that you are probably a nice, a good, sort of person. This would cause me to feel terribly guilty about hating you for such beautiful work. Well done. You swine! :cool:

    When they build a bridge over the Atlantic so the airlines don't have you over a barrel, I'll visit.

    Mind you, given the cost of air travel now, I wonder how long until liners become viable agin.

    That intake setup rocks. So does the comet CVT.

    One of the nicest MB's on the web. Great build thread. It's always fun watching a bike progress to the final stage.

    I enjoy building things and am good at making them work, but I have never been able to make things look really good. I appreciate the talent and effort it took to plan and complete your project. Congrats and thanks for sharing all those photos.

    I agree with the others and thank you for posting pictures. It really adds to this forum. I have several motorized bikes, some are very nice but your bike tops them all.

    Best Regards
