Talking Hello from Switzerland

Hi There,

Like your forum! Very inspiritual!

I life in Central Switzerland.
Favorite things "to waste my time" on: anything on two/four wheels that is making me go fast, ski, snowboard, my 1976 US-Ford Granada, art, music, travel, cool people ...
I work in the sport industrie, starting our own clothing label, getting my hands dirty on anything with wheels and I think this region is in desperate need of a rock/metal bar!

Started as a hobby, Chris (partner in crime) and me are restoring/customizing vintage bicycles, repairing cycles and build up chruisers.
And now it is time for a MOTORIZED BICYCLE! I love and honour all those beautiful vintage motorcycles and cycles from the old days.
Everything seemed so simple and mechanicaly sophisticated.

Following attachment will be the "Cloud Hunter":
Front end: steel, leaf spring, industrial bearings, 135mm wide (to fit rear hub)
Frame: steel, rear end on both sides leaf springs, industrial bearings
Motor: Something realy cool from RockSolidEngine
Tank: steel, made to fit in the frame
Tires: 2.75x16inch, vintage style nobby motorcycle tires
Rims: 1.8x16inch, vintage style motorcycle rims, drilled to fit heavy duty bicycle spokes
Hubs: 2x heavy duty bicycle 3speed steel hubs with drum brakes - This set up will give us 2 different sprocket settings "on the go" and a fast repair option.

The tubing and some parts should be in soon. Beer is already stocked up in the workshed!

Anyway, great to be here, take all care and if there is Anyone bugging you: just smile

Cheers, Tom
