This is the best bike I ever built. Last year I only had to change oil & polish the chrome. Thank You Japan for the killer reliable Robin/Subaru.
My garage is full of broken bikes, with the exception of this one../.. And yes, she's been around the Block!
She is a 35 cc. All stock. Starts on 2nd pull when cold. 1st when all warmed up. Not the fastest bike in the barn, but solid 22 mph. Fuel tank is under motor. No mix, just regular gas. I love pedaling her backwards.
I believe they call this bike a coupe-deluxe. I bought it damaged at the swap meet in 2003 and I have seen them since for sale at a local shop in Escondido. Brand new one costs about 300 but EEbay about 220. Bought it with regular stock cruiser stuff on it coaster rear, springer front. Good frame for adding a jack shaft, this one has a pillow bearing supported jack shaft that is bolted to a weld on plate.
She has grease fittings & rolls soo smooth. Compensates for slight mis alLiGn MENTS of the drive axle bearings.
I love Her.... Better than my bottom bracket design... Might have to take a step in the reverse direction with future builds....
