What do you think is this more motorcycle or bicycle...
This is my son's 2005 Shwinn StingRay. Orange County Chopper edition.. He got when he was 12.. He has been modifying and customizing it for the last year or so..
This was another father and son project, He wanted to build... I haven't seen one that looks anything like it before... Regular bike or motorcycle parts don't work here.Everything needs to be modified for our needs... Had a great time teaching my son many more different skills building this toy ..lol
It has a 80cc engine with racing gears and carb .brass head gaskets.billet motor mounts, performance coil...9" disc brakes front and rear..
36in forks with 6in raisers flame style mirrors..All the switches for lights ,horn start...
seats been modified 4 inches pushed back ..6 volt generator, duel 6volt headlights made from some old driving lights ..Hand made brackets to hold them into motorcycle light bracket..
It also has rack with small motorcycle saddlebags and tiallight. Harley 16in Dunlop tire..digital speedometer.. Every part had been modified to make this little cruiser..
I find joy in spending time with my son's.. Kept them from running the streets and taught to work with their hands and minds..
all this customized by my son with my help..Half of the parts are for a motorcycle and been modified..This bike can go 55mph with a 200lb rider..
Paul Sr from OCC was at my son's work and seen the bike ..He talked asking my son questions about his bike.. Then gave him a thumbs up on the bike.. He loved that!!!
Now he plans to add signal lights to it too.. Lol..More wiring to do then..
I know the stickers say 49cc but it's a 80cc.. The two engine's look the same size but different bores and stroke..We did this because 49cc legal in this state..without tagging it or getting him harassed... He has been pulled over by the police and said they just wanted to check it out...lol
Of course my beautiful wife decided to jump on while I was taking the pictures..lol
I look at this and say it's no longer a bicycle its more a Motorcycle.. Lol .. We are interested in your opinion..leave a comment and tell us..what you think...
