Homebuilt Custom Motorized WCC Bike

I found a bashed and battered Jesse James chopper bicycle on the train tracks and decided to give it a new life. after chopping off the rear triangle and forth of the seat stay, I used EMT conduit to fabricate a new section and "box' it in. After debating whether to go rigid or softtail, I decided my 41 year old ass couldn't take the bumps of Philadelphia's streets, so I made a rear suspension using bits from the old dropouts. I used a set of wheels off of an Schwinn OCC chopper. They look fine proportionwise but I found out a 16" doughnut spare from a car fits just right. The rear wheel is tubeless now. I decided to go with Harbor Freight's 99cc 3.5 hp Predator series engine. It is still a work in progress but I'm going to take my time with it because I want it to be just right.
