Default Re: What got you interested in MB's?

My first attempt at motorizing a bike was in 1971, a 3 Hp Briggs with a home made jack shaft kinda thing that didn't work very well. My friends dad ran a vw shop and we worked for him as early teens cleaning parts etc. The engine fan for about two days, then threw a rod. I think we had it geared to low and by passing the governor didn't help either. I have often thought about that bike. Then in Nov. 2010 a friend of mine wanted to build one so I started looking, I bought five kits from Bikeberry selling four to friends at cost. My friend past away in 2007 so last July 4 I rode my bike across town to his mothers home that is on the same property that the long closed shop is on to show her that even tho Dennis wasn't there to help me "we " did finish what "we " started,
Your results may not be the same,Greg
