Hello, UGV members and thanks everyone who has welcomed me here!
So of you may know from other forums as Crazy Horse, I custom Stretch Beach Cruiser Bicycles much like the original designer back in 1993 his name is Rob, and he started the Stretch Cruiser Bicycle with his son, get this Rob wasn't a bicycle designer he was a Plumber by trade.
If you ever get the chance you can see many of my builds at motorbicycling.com, see the thread history of the Stretch Beach Cruiser: I'll try to post a link but it may not be visible: motorbicycling.com/showthread.php?t=47202,...
So I've progressed to Stretching other bicycles like the kids size Schwinn Stingray Chopper Bicycle, and yes I'm GUILTY of motorizing most if not all of these builds.
I have been cutting and welding up bicycles since the mid to late 70's, I guess I've inherited that old gene / obsession that all the returning WW II veterans had after the war, who chopped up surplus Harley's that were sold to the US public after the war, so yes I'm a bit of what I call a 1% Outlaw Custom Stretch Cruiser & Chopper Bicycle Builder, I'm sure that some if not most here would fit the 1% Outlaw Custom Bicycle Builder identity!
YO C.H. glad to see you found this place! I am aka inked1974 on mb.com. Havnt been real active there as I spend most of my time riding under my own leg power. I still enjoy stopping in over there to see whats happnin with the crew.

Desertguns: Alivio is good stuff, blown. Not as light as the latest X series Shimano stuff but just as strong or stronger. Been using it on my MTB stuff for years. And most of the new tech (like Shadow) eventually trickles down to Alivio & XT.
