    Glad to be here. This is Patrick from San Diego and my build was:

    2012 Black Schwinn Panther with seven gears
    4-stroke Chinese engine with belt drive from
    Jack shaft kit from Sick Bike Parts so that I can use all the gearing

    Top end speed is about 35 mph in seventh gear. Will climb very steep hills in first gear. I weight 240 pounds so this is saying something. Where I live in San Diego has a number of hills so gearing essential. Biggest challenge was getting engine mounted into the frame with tube geometry.

    Having fun spinning around the neighborhood and questions wherever I go.
