    Goodness Gracious!!!

    It's a steampunk bike.

    It's something like an ugly dog. Ugly, yes. But still beautiful.

    And I hope I'm not being insulting. Because my intent really is just the opposite.

    Looks like you have a Rock Solid Engines Reed Valve Intake system and a Rock Solid Engines billet cylinder head. Have you thought of upgrading to the Rock Solid Engines Walbro style diaphragm carburettor setup?

    What is the approx cost of your frame and forks? because i really like the rear swingarm setup.

    the engine is a rock solid stage 2 70. i have considered a walbro carb however i have had no problems with the carb that came with the engine

    the frame is a limited edition retro replica of the original loop tail quadangle first in production 1979 (post 6)

    this one is a 2012 26in version. there is no 26in version for 2013 or 2014. there is a 29in version for 2013.

    approx cost to convert rigid bmx cruiser to full suspension i dunno hundreds of money.
