Thanks scotto. Back in September when Bruce bought this bike nither one of us had any idea what was a good bike to use, or why. He rides a ZX10R and was thinking at the time maybe motor bicycles won't be any fun, so why spend much money. Since that time he's learned about how much fun my bike has been so he probably would do it differently now. I think as time has gone by and we found out how nice my bike is, he started thinking this bike would end up a little too cheap and worried it wouldn't be very good. I was a little concerned about that too, but now that it's complete I feel it turned out better than either one of us expected.

So far Bruce hasn't even seen it yet except for the pictures I sent him. Hopefully he'll go crazy like the rest of us and our numbers will increase by one.

Considering this is probably the cheapest bike on earth, it was nice to build it and find out what you can end up with spending minimal money. I'm pretty impressed.
