Hello from Oklahoma!
Hi! I'm Jake. I'm 17, and I've been a member here before, but I never really posted anything and I forgot my username and password on top of that, so I figured I'd start fresh.
I'm a backyard mechanic, always working on some junked up car that's probably not worth the effort. I used to have a nice 66cc motorized bike built from a kit, but that was before I knew anything about wrenching and barely had any tools... I ended up stripping out the hole where a head bolt goes in and ruining the motor.
Lately, though, I've been working on another bike. I have a Mac 3516 chainsaw engine to put on it. It's a simple design- friction drive, front wheel drive. After only a few minutes of work, I got part of the mounting assembly done, but I only have access to the shop for a few minutes every weekday, so I can't do anything else until tomorrow.
I'm hoping to learn a lot about these bikes so that I don't mess this one up, and hopefully, fix my other one as well!
