Default Re: Stepson gets a Cranbrick for Christmas

Just a word of caution based on experience. Make sure the kid has some respect for the amount of work/money that will go into motorizing a bike. I built a nice little bike for a nephew and found it laying on it's side in his back yard, tires flat, chain off and the engine seized due to lack of lubrication.

Some kids will appreciate the gift, some won't. I even let this nephew be involved with the build but he still had no respect for what he had. Make sure your boy understands that its more than just a bicycle before you invest the time and dollars into that project.
