    names Dave
    live in Reno, Nevada
    have a 70cc cheapo mounted on a schwinn 10 speed
    working on pulling more speed and power out of it (pretty typical)
    new sprocket, walbro carb, expansion tank and what not.
    so far on a 44t gear i've been able to hit 32mph and couple of times.

    this is an old photo, i took when i got it all together
    i removed the seat and now i sit on a rack over the rear tire.
    no pedals... don't care for 'em.

    Hi Dave. Welcome to MBc!
    If you tuck in I bet you look like your going for speed records on the salt flats.

    If you search and are unable to find your answers, don't hesitate to post your question. Someone will steer you to a link, or reply to your question. Were here for each other! Enjoy! :grin:
    You may have seen this, but here's a great MBc starter "link" to get you motoring.

    a little update..

    after a little minor porting and exhaust tinkering, carb tinkering, modified boost bottle i pulled 35.9 MPH!! yay
    i think going to the gym and losing a couple pounds probably helped out, too.
  5. That's the fist time I've seen a curved handlebar happy time install.

    You want more speed you should consider a smaller sprocket!

    Overall I feel that your bike is pretty cool.

    I sit on a tractor seat on my Happy Time bike over the rack. It's comfy.

    I love it. Is that a Walbro carb? And what is that carb insulator/spacer made of... plastic or paint? Looks like plastic.

    Are you going to build some kinda padding for your chest?? Looks like it'd be uncomfortable.

    Cool bike, but if you get a chain jam at speed, you could really hurt yourself. You'll need a testicle helmet. :-|
