    and new to the moto bicycle commuity, here's some pictures of my first build. It's an electra relic with 80cc 2 stroke engine. I had some issues with mounting the motor on the frame but resolved it using a rubber suspension lift as a mount. Worked out great now I need to widen the diameter of the spoket to fit around the rear wheel. Since it has a wider diameter. I just can't wait to get this thing on the road and ride it... Hopefully she well be my daily commuter to work since gas is so darn expensive now a days. :rolleyes:

    I look forward in taking part in these forums!!

    looks cool! Do you have any closer pictures of what you did to mount the engine? I'm curious now...

    Lovely bike for a motor. If you paint the tank to match she'll come up beautifully. Then you can keep the tank if you upgrade to 4-stroke.
  6. love it so far! careful with those fenders though, a lot of folks report their fenders vibrating off and tangling in their spokes!
