    Hi, I just got started into the hobby with the purchase of a BGF 80cc motor kit. It is installed on a 17y.o. Schwinn 6speed Cruizer that I bought new. It also has an A/M springer front on it. So far so good, I love riding this thing! I have a great old skool H-D chopper but I find myself wanting to ride the bike more than the chopper! By the way, my name is John :)

    Hello John!, from Davenport, Iowa. There are a few members here from Iowa already. These bikes really are alot of fun to putt around on. If you like choppers, check out the 2 I built over in the picture gallery. We have been having a blast on these since the snow finally melted. A few of the Harley guys really like em too. Seems like once you ride, you kinda get hooked. Have fun! John from Davenport, Iowa

    I have taken the fenders off because the back one rattled like crazy around 25 mph and I could not get it to quit. I have also lowered the seat so it is more like riding a motorcycle. I have also added a speedo and a light.
