    i have finished my occ chopper. its not a schwinn though, i hope to get pics up after i get back from toronto. it got an black powerking 80cc engine. it pulls the bike which is very heavy and me about 30-35 kph at half thrrottle. its had someproblems though, i was riding in my neighborhood and then snap. i pushed in the clutch lever to show my friend and in stead the lever broke and it made me pop the clutch:shock: i finally got to a stop and looked down and there was my clutch cable snapped in half. so i get home and i take some parts off another bike. so i get it going and then whammy my chain snapps and whipps my leg:cry: so i get it home and get a new chain. after a new chain its been running fine untill something else.pop. there goes my back tire......................................again. so its now sitting in my garage waiting to get fixed in two weeks. but other then that it works fine. its got a homemade super bright LED head light, turnsignals with a brake light and horn hooked up to the kill switch. the kill switch was put to a key switch. i have real nice ape-hanger handle bars and a black banana seat off a boys mustng bike. well i hope to get pics soon

    thanks every one for your replys and stringer i have pics of my other bikes if you check the photo gallery or my thread starters. ihave about 6 bikes now and more to come. i just dont have pics because i dont have film for my camera and my family is buying a super good digital camera so i will be getting very good quality pics after i get back from toronto in two weeks. but i can understand why some people wont belive a 13 yo can build stuff.

    I enjoyed looking at the pictures of your builds. I think you will be someone to watch for future builds. Good work.

    Nice find pghewins. Wonder where this kid is now? Those are some nice looking builds at 13 years old. He should be 21 now. Looking at the rest of his photobucket I saw multiple pics of one final unfinished bike then some tagging and what appears to be a raced out lawnmower.

    Stringer, were you banned from the other forum like a few of us here have been? (if so then join the club)
