Hey Guys,


Today I started installing my old Kings 80cc (3085mi) motor of off the 1973 Schwinn Suburban that it had resided on for 3 years, to the new bike, which I LOVE to death is the Schwinn Point Beach. SO light I can lift it with 2 fingers, and the brakes!!!! Anyway, the motor looked so nasty, I couldn't get it back bright after hours of scrubbing.... So I painted it.... Yeah yeah yeah I know about painting the motors but I did it anyway. I got a large frame adapter (boygofast on eBay) as I didn't want to drill the frame on a aluminum bike.

This summer will be spent getting everything sorted out, the usual problems that come with the UHT (Ultra Happy Time... I like this name) making sure everything is tight and adjusted. The fall and winter will be spent installing better cables, and a 12V lighting system. Plus the largest knobby tires I can find, front and back. Next year, a springer and a reserve tank.... And a back up block or two... Later Dudes!


So here is before, and the start of after....

:-/What the problem with painting the engine? As long as you use high temp paint.
Schwinn Point Beach, is that the $160 one at wally world? Or am I confused that is often the case:confused:

Yes, it's from Walley World, and a CHINESE made bike.
 
Great bike. I'm thinking about using a point beach myself (I know someone who can ship it over here for free) How do the boygofast large frame motor mounts work, I cant figure it out myself. A close up pic of the front motor mount would be excellent.
