I bet that engine install was effortless.
Sometimes I wonder if the Happy Time was designed for such a bike.
It looks very nice.
That 36 tooth sprocket and those skinny tires,how fast?

I have a suburban with a motor too... Worst possible bike for this application in my opinion.

there is a larger tire available, 1 3/8 knobby type. I'd really suggest that. I put it on my motoschwinn and I stopped blowing tires right and left.

Oh another hint for the Suburban, get the mountain bike brake pads.... I've got 2500 miles on my 73 Suburban and have a bit of experience with this bike.

thanks for the tips,
I wasn't sure what my tire options were for this bike, a friend had said they would be hard to find, bigger tires would really help with road vibration.
and better brakes are also a must these pads just don't have the stopping power I need at these speeds
