Hi guys, I am new to Motoredbike.
This is my first attempt and it really is comfortable for a fifty year old 250 lb. man.
Had to make some conversions but alls well that ends well.
Tell me what you think and hinters if you gottem. Thanks

Looks nice to me !!

Hints? Splurge on a shock absorber seat post, about $18.

If you see the tire need to be pumped up once a week, swap out for the $7 slime tubes.

I like green, wish the Sun Retros came in that color, look more Shwinny.

Thanks for the responses. I have retightened all screws and bolts about 4 times in 7 rides. I even welded a couple in place. Hey about that seat shock, where do I find them and how high does it make the seat? I have very short legs, that is why I ask.
The rear rack I remanufactured from a 1967 ct 90 honda.
Later.

the shock will add about 1-1.5" but it looks like you are extended at least that much out of seat tube ... should be good to go
you can get a suspension post at most bike shops, look on seat post for diameter of post

Wow, Bill,
I did some searching on line and those post suspensions can run hundreds of dollars. Any idea's on the best cheap ones?
Thanks

Looks comfy. Wish I had the welding capabilities. That would come in handy. Good job!

Thanks Bill and I will invest it to save on the butt aches. :)
Mr. R I did not have to do too much welding but I did heat the rods and hammer them flat to drill mounting holes through them. I have a little cheap gasless mig welder.
