With the top t/belt shield removed, you may be able to peer down towards the crank sprocket for wetness.

With that said, timing belt change by itself has no issues with oil or seals whatsoever, unless the camshafts were removed. Need to do some more searching to see if it is coming from the camshaft or lower at the crankshaft. At least they are designed that if they leak they won't contaminate the timing belt, but I don't think the timing belt change and the leak are related.

It's frustrating... I've enjoyed the cruiser but I don't feel like this is something that should be happening in a car that has only had rather slow highway miles (live in rural Minnesota!).
