Re: Why build a motorbike???
I find it very satisfying riding a bike I made with my own hands. I get to decide how it looks. What parts are used. How much performance I want it to have.
When I ride in public, the reaction my bike gets from people is very positive. My bikes are well crafted enough that most people assume they're store bought. Their jaws usually drop to the ground when I tell them "I made this".
I've been riding all my life, but these motor bicycles overall, are the most fun of any bikes I've owned.
