Re: Bike from scratch
if you do buy a cheap, used motored bike off craigslist, remember what you're getting.
a cheap, used motored bike off craigslist.
in otherwords, you get what you pay for.
i'm saying this because if you buy a piece of junk, it might turn you off to motorized bikes altogether, and you'll miss out on what they're really all about.
but on the plus side, if you learn how to fix all the problems on your used piece of crap, it'll be easier to build a good one in the future.
