Default Re: New Here, getting ideas

Welcome to the forum. Your project sounds interesting. Unfortunately I can't offer much help in the area of the vintage bike but just wait; I'm sure you'll get replies from some who can. Several questions come to mind however. Are you looking at a 2 stroke or a 4 stroke power plant? Single speed or geared? Fat tires or thin road tires. I would think that the Husky, Worksman and a couple of other heavy built 'industrial' bikes would make a good foundation. There are a few WW II style military bikes that have been built by members but I don't recall ever seeing one like you're proposing. It might be helpful if you posted some pictures of those you mentioned. Please keep us posted on your build. And again, welcome to the best motorized bicycle forum available.
