    New guy from Long Beach, Calif here and new to motorized bikes also. Though I've been contemplating putting one together for myself for the past decade, it wasn't until my son got a motor kit last week that I ever moved down that path. As it is his bike, I will try and get him to join and contribute. It's an early 60's (maybe late 50's) 24" Schwinn "Typhoon" with lots of "patina". It's a Raw 80cc motor. We got it running, but it needs some tweeking still.

    It's a fine looking bike. It might be a bit too small for him, though.
    But he'll be the judge of that. And if so, switching to another bike won't be a big problem.
