    26" Diamondback Della Cruz. Made in Canada, eh. Just need a mini engine.

    Big changes in-the-works on for this little Canadian cruiser. Stay tuned, should be cool.

    Today, I test rode this bike for the fist time since motorizing it. It's a little different, 49cc 2-Stroke mini dirt bike engine, fully balanced crank, 15mm carb, performance head & NGK ignition. 4+ HP, Revs up to 12000 RPM.

    That kit looks like a 4 stroke kit. It will not work

    Man that is a sweet bike how fast is it and how much? Do you keep all your builds or do you sell them?

    Very unique. I did not realize that some of the Diamondbacks were made in Canada. I used to have a DB Voyager that I really liked but somebody stole it out of my front yard in broad daylight.
    -Fitting a motor into the Dela Cruz frame took a lot of work, but it looks great. I would have probably taken the easy way out by adding an electric kit and mounting the batteries under the banana seat.

    I just noticed that your exhaust runs under the banana seat. Very Ducati-esque.

    Thanks, I only rode it the one time. Didn't go for top speed, just made sure it worked. Haven't had time to get back to it yet, berried on a different project (see photo below). I do sell & trade them after I ride them around for awhile. I like always having a new bike.

    So your passion is the creativity itself. While I feel sure you enjoy riding them, your creative juices compel you to start another build. Cool.
