Not that old, only 40. But I was into motorized bikes, got out of them about 7 years ago, tried motorcycles but unfortunately had a run of bad luck buying bikes in bad condition and my last motorcycle became a never ending project. I have young kids and I’d rather be spending time with them than constantly tinkering with a 40 year old bike. So I’ve decided to get back into motorized bicycles, and I am planning a build with a 212cc and the 30 series juggernaut asymmetrical cvt from gopowersports, Suzuki k10 forks and a custom lighting system which includes headlight, tail light, turn signals, charging coil, battery and fuse box, which I will be designing and installing myself. I did a similar setup on a similar bike I was building about 7 years ago and never got to finish.
 
Can't wait to see it! What frame do you plan on using?
I believe it’s a Schwinn cantilever. The wheels will also be heavy duty to handle the pull of that monster motor (monster for a bicycle anyway). Yes the idea I am basically going for is a mopedorcycle lol. It’s going to look more like a motorcycle than anything when I’m done.

My bike looks alot like a motorcycle. I think it has a nice balance.

Welcom to the gang Bruce. Sounds like you know what you're doin', but we don't believe you 'till we see the pictures. 😁
It might be a bit till pics start happening lol. I work Tuesday through Saturday and get my kids on the weekend, but I drop them off for school Monday morning, so Mondays are gonna be the best day for me to work on the bike.
