whaddup yo, building a schwinn resto-custom lowrider. It started life as a 3 spd schwinn suburban. I've order a 80cc engine from motorizedbikeparts.com . Ive read that some have had issues with the 3 spd hub? Im contemplating on either trying to get it to work or I was really wanting to hook up some 140 spoke rims. Anyone do this? any issue with the hub? All help is appreciated.
thanks

Hey knottsoljah, I have 68 spokes on my latest cruiser. It was a pain dealing with the rear sprocket mounting. The spokes were tight together and it added 2 hrs to get the mounting bolts aligned and tightened. You may have to try and find a sprocket and hub combo. I havent seen them 144 spoke though. If you figure out a solution, please post your findings.

Thanks all, ive been doing the research thing and it looks like I might go the 72 spoke way. It will be the easiest and most cost effective and still achive the look I want.
