Default Re: Another new guy...

@ Allen_wrench - Yeah, I'm building a Pietenpol Air Camper. Goal for completion is Spring 2012, still lots left to do... I commute 26 miles each way, and 12 of those are on a 2-lane country road with no shoulder and a 55mph speed limit.

@ baridco - I'm hoping it's a big difference from what I'm used to. I love aviation but I'm a pilot, engineer, and mechaic. Sometimes you just need to do something different to re-focus... I'm hoping this bike will be a nice distraction.

I intend to build it pretty much from the box first, then fab/replace/upgrade as necssary to get to a robust configuration. Motor kit is ordered - 66cc 2010 Grubee kit from I've got all the parts I think I'll need to put side-pull brakes as well. Bike is ready to be torn down and prepped. Tuesday night the chaos will begin... I'm planning on starting a build thread if I can keep disciplined enough.

EDIT: Build thread started here:
