Default Can't wait to build!

Hey everyone,

Just recently saw a RAW 50cc build at a local hot rod shop mounted on a cheapie Huffy cruiser and was hooked! Being a designer and car builder, my mind instantly went into design mode and the possibilities of a sick bike and a great board track/traditional hot rod themed build! Then I found this site and it all started to make sense!

I plan on finding a frame/complete bike this week to start on. I would love to start with a Workman frame but feel it may be a bit wiser to start with a cheapie Huffy or something of the like just to get the feel of the motor bicycle world. Started looking through good ol' craigslist and plan on hitting up some local thrift stores and such this week. I will be going with an 80cc Grubee, performance carb and expansion chamber to start with. I'm pretty familiar with 2 strokes coming from a background in Quad racing, as well as nitro R/C.

I'd love any input you guys could give me with some of the build thoughts I have. I can hardly wait to get this thing started!
