    I picked up a 26" Schwinn Skyliner 21 Speed at a fair price. It rides okay for a cheap bike. Needs a minor tune, but what new. Kicking around build ideas.

    That looks well suited for motorizing. I haven't seen a Skyline in quite a few years.

    that's a huge triangle, you could almost fit a chevy small block in there

    This bike turned out awesome. I love the thumb throttle.
