First build by most not handy guy
let me start by saying i was so proud of myself for removing the front and rear wheel. This should give you an idea of how handy of an individual i am. I purchased the below low rider felt from norm at venicemotorbikes.com. After enjoying it i decided i would like to build the next bike myself so that i could learn about the bike since i know nothing. Also, after the first group ride i attended i realized most people build the bikes and take so much pride in their creations.
I had a stock felt el guapo in my garage and decided this would be the bike to motorize. I spent last night stripping the bike down to the frame. I ordered a 2 stroke engine kit and it should be here in the next few days. I thought i could document my build on the site and get some input.
I uploaded a picture of the frame i have and also a pic of the bike i have.
The next 2 pics are a theme i kind of like. Military rat rod kind of theme.
Option #1 i was thinking about attempting to make pretty much the same frame shape as the bike i currently have (norms design) only not doing the inframe tank (because i have no idea how) and going with a handlebar mounted keg style tank inside a leather bag.
Option #2 just keep stock frame with motor and behind the seat keg style tank (i am not a big fan of the standard tank.)
i am sure i will have a ton of questions.
