I've been slowly putting this bike together for a few months. I'll have motivation to work on it for half a day. Then it goes on the back burner for a bit while I start cooking a different stew. Finished it up a few days ago for a 40 mile ride around San Diego County. A friend of mine had put one of these motors in a road bike frame, and I always liked how it looked, compared to the beach cruisers board tracker clones. Seemed a bit more "race". Lighter frame. Skinny wheels. Everything you need and nothing you don't. My dad found this old 70's Sears frame in the rafters of his shop. Perfect donor frame. Good friend travis bought four of these motors and was kind enough to let me put a bike together with one. (I still owe you!) So here we go... The "Mandarin Missile" I drilled out the side covers, made the exhaust from a few sets of different handle bars. The tank is aluminum, the inspiration is from 60's and 70's drag bikes that had small tube fuel tanks. Drilled rear sprocket. THe rear seat fairing was made from aluminum scraps that were left over from other projects. It's shape was dictated by what I had available so i was limited with what I could do. After the 40 mile ride this weekend, seat padding is on it's way! Trying something different. Lot's of cool bikes on here, but I don't want to contribute by offering more of the same. California in December is a **** I wouldn't wish on anyone!
