Welcome to the forum. And good to see another Okie interested in motobikes.
I live in Sapulpa, OK and built my first bike a few months ago. They are fun to build and ride.
I would be happy to show you my bike and show you the tweaks I have done to make it more reliable.
Take it for a ride to see what it feels like. I am gathering parts for my next build which is going to be a chopper.
I have a welder, CNC plasma table, and few other tools good for making custom parts and mods. If you need something let me know.
