Default Re: Old Man With New Interest

I am relatively new to this motor bike thing. I built a friction drive from a homelite weedeater motor. If your finances allow I think the Honda or HS engine are more reliable than the Chinese 2 strokes. That is my opinion and as we know opinions are like noses, everyone has one. Do a lot of reading on this board and form one of your own. Personally the only three wheelers I like are the tadpole configuration and they are mostly recumbents and low visibility. That said I am building one from scratch using Greenspeed plans and will put an engine on it when it is finished.
I meant no disrespect when I recommended a three wheel. My Grandfather was riding a bicycle when he was in his 80's.
