    im thinking of getting the monark *second bike in picture* he wants a hundred for it so i dunno and its a 24 inch and i dnot know if thats gonna be 2 small for my fat *** but i def want a older bike, doing it up hotrod style for carshows

    what you guys think 100 bills good for that bike?

    or i might go this route with a new bike for 70 buck to save money http://i.walmart.com/i/p/00/02/89/14/56/0002891456641_500X500.jpg

    i was also told that they can be street legal so thats also why im interested in these




    but in short im hyped!

    Cranbroke

    Huffy Cranbroke.I motorized one of those. Re-enforce the fenders or you will be sorry, it does look good though. I used some of that strapping metal that plumbers use to secure pipes and cut little slits with a dremel they break right there where they attach to the frame. Maybe this should be taken to the technical area.

  9. Fenders

    Cranbrook fenders coulda cost me my job. I built one of these 69.7cc'ers for my bos he came back with some battle scars he did. lucky enough he was cool put on a new front wheel and took off ha ha he had to be bleeding. man cool bike but he had to switch to plastic fenders. Oh that 24" probably a tight fit but man thatd be the bike. Plus I was wondering where to find a springer front end for a Schwinn Heavey Duti? Oh Welcome Mister.

  10. Welcome.

    That is a nice old bike, but the price is steep for the condition it is in. I suggest buying the newer bike and get up and running and keep and eye open for a better deal on an old bike.
