    I'm Brandon, I'm just finished puting the 80cc Happy Time 2 stroke on my Schwinn (SS cruiser?)... the test ride lasted 2 minutes.. it fired right up, did a couple laps at 1/3 throttle, it sounded good for a freshy, good throttle response, then that P.O.S. chain tensioner gave (apparently there was free space between the inside wall of the tensioner wheel and the bearing), back wheel totally bent, and me and the bike went down. So a new wheel and a different tensioner mod and I should be good to go until the next minor disaster.
