Looks really great! can you confirm that it runs properly with the float at such an angle? Also don't forget the particulate filter or you'll be cleaning junk off of your carb pin a lot! :p

It runs great, although a modification to the intake is needed..The air filter had to be trimmed and the carb is actuall siting in the 1:00 position..I am going to fab up a new aluminium intake like we do on the race cars...When i do build it i am going to try one of the Boost Bottles...

Dude that's the Wal Mart bike,right?

I was drooling all over that bike when I saw it.
Is that a 50,65 or 70?

It fits nice,man.
I'm sure you can figure out the carb bowl thing.

Yes it is the wal mart bike..I bought 2 of them..Built one and am having the time of my life riding it..Will keep the other as a pedel bike..I used to collect the origional Krates..Had all of the flavors in my collection..I always wanted one ever since they came out but was way too pricey for my dad back in the late 60's..So in the late 80's is when i collected them...Still have a predicessor to them, remeber the Fastback...I have a 1967 purple one that i still ride today...I will dig up a picture of it and post here later...Gotta go for now..Thanks...Meatball

Ok. I found just a few old pictures of my 1967 Schwinn Fastback..Although i hope you don't mind my ex-wife in it as im sure she would mind more..ha ha, oh well...(And im not being disrespectful here Ladies)..It's just the only ones that i could find..If it wasn't pouring down raining here in southern Louisiana, i would go dig her out and go ride and snap some more pictures..Of the bike that is...lol...

Also you may enjoy the scale replica's i have of the Krates...
