Default Re: Build is getting out of hand, and I have not even started yet!

Yes, I do believe it's an addiction, and I blame all of you guys!
Whew, I feel so much better!

Today I picked up a $10 weed eater and a $15 Kent Super Scooter to turn into a friction drive setup to sell to help fund my bike project. Something tells me it will not actually end up in someone else's hands...

I am picking up a good condition Power Wheels Xtreme Machine (go kart) this weekend that was on CL for free (but needs a battery of course). The plan was to get a new SLA battery for it and repaint it to sell, but I have a sneaking suspicion that my son will latch onto that one and it will have to stay.

So my garage just got more crowded and I am no closer to actually getting my bike built. BUT, at least I am having fun

BTW, after spending some time cruising MopedArmy for a tank, I really want to say a huge "thank you" to y'all. The community here is so friendly and helpful, I really appreciate it. I am sure it is a culture thing, but the forums over there are just plain hostile. This is definitely a nice place to spend time.
