Robert in New York City, NY

November 5th, 2009


Hi GeBe,

Here are some over due photos of the latest incarnation of my bike,. The bike I had just before this was stolen with the redmax engine I bought 5 year old. It was a great little engine although I can’t complain; the new Tanaka hits 32 mph right out of the box.


I live in NYC. My Golden Eagle setup has been the best way to get around the city. It saves time not having to finding parking for a car, waiting for trains and buses not to mention the fun.

I wanted to show you and other Golden Eagle riders my setup for additional passengers. I have a rear rack when turned upside down and around it makes a secure platform for an additional seat. I had an aluminum plate welded onto the bottom of the rack and fabricated a padded seat that attaches to the aluminum plate. There are two foot pegs attached to the frame for comfort. The seat is great for short runs with my 11 year old daughter. I can then swing it back and use it as a rear rack.

Thanks for your help over the years,
Robert from NYC
