    I see the hand brake, but am wondering if it is a single speed??

    That frame, if it had a 7 speed cassette, would probably work better than the recumbent, for half the price....

    Thanks guy's, no theres no hand brake(yet) and its single speed. had one h*ll of a battle putting the rear sprocket on the wheel. the frame is store bought not custom. i went in there to get a different bike but when i saw this one i changed my plans. still working the bugs out , ive got a wicked vibration at higher speed that i have not felt on my other bikes (trying to figure it out) rob.........................

    Whichever company gets a 7 speed, w/ handbrakes on it, is going to blow the competition out of the water.

    There are so many possibilities with such a frame, especially on the seat/comfort level.

    a few changes

    just a few changes , painted the tank (fairly close to the bike color) candy red over silver base. cut the rear fender for more of a bobber look ,

    re-mounted all of the tensioners and added the large filipino clutch mod(thanks again man) makes the clutch so smooth

    Welding motors in stretch cruisers

    Welding motors in stretch cruisers did not work well at all on my build. It vibrated really bad around 15-20mph. So we had to design a 100 bolt-on anti-vibration engine mount and it really works especially at higher speeds!
