Default Howdy!

Just signed up last night, been lurking around for a week or so reading posts and informing myself about these bikes and various engine kits. I'm hoping to build a bike eventually to commute to work on (only 4 miles) I've got an old GT Mtn bike that would work and be pretty straight forward conversion... but I really like the looks of the cruiser style bikes and especially the vintage racers! I'd really like to build a cruiser with the classic curves and the springer front, but equip it modem items like disc brakes.

I'm currently doing a "restification" on a 1962 Jeep CJ-5. I've stretched the frame 14" and eventually the tub as well. I'm going to build a 4 link suspension for it, run Toyota axles, transfer cases and transmission, all connected to a modern Vortec V6. I want it to be a well equipped rock crawler I can still drive around once in a while!

As you can tell, I like older vehicles, with modern running gear!
