I reside in Nothern California, approximately 50 miles east of San Francisco.
I have been monitoring this forum for a few months and finally jumped in with both feet and built my first motorized bike. I will post in the motorized cruisers section with pictures of the build.
Living in California poses it's own set of challenges for motorized bikes. We are only able to legally run a 49cc engine, and we have speed restrictions also. All of the bikes I build will attempt to remain in legal compliance. I do not want to give the local law enforcement free money by building an out of compliance 2 stroker!
Thanks to everyone on this board for their great advice!
