Hi there. So I am sick to death of working on cars.. and just as sick to death spending all my money running them once they are on the road! Never really liked motorbikes.. but I love cycling! What is the answer to all my woes? Motorized bicycle? Yep.

I have done a lot of thread reading and picture looking.. I know what I want to build but I just need to figure out how. Got some drawings so I will throw some plans together and commence frame building!

I want to build something along the lines of an earlyish Harley.. like 1914 style or something..

Do you guys salvage a fair amount of parts from donor bicycles? Like head tubes and bottom brackets, dropouts etc? Do you use entire mopeds for the engine donors or does everything have to be fitted specific? How does pedal start work? SO MANY QUESTIONS!!
