Redline Rain City chopper

I got one for my wife for her birthday. Well made. BIG, it is about the length of a real chopper, so big that even at my fiveten the seat is best in the lowest(and best looking) position. The forks are easier to set up if you have a freind handy. This one had the wrong brake adaptor for the front so there is not one on it right now. Belt drive with nicely boxed dropouts. The tank is plastic but has the right shape.

Nice looking bike, and your wife looks pretty happy about it, too .

How much does it weigh? I can see the obvious disc brakes, is it multi gear? Top speed?

How fast can it go downhill ?

I'd be tempted to put one of those Chinese engine kits on it and replace the plastic tank with a real one.

That would be cool, but not the tank that comes with the kits because those look cheap and have no flow.
