Re: complete newbie--tell me the best way--i'll listen
Welcome to the forum! Let me bestow upon you my great wealth of knowledge; do what GearNut says. Don't believe him at first- go research every piece of advice- double check. Then do what he said in the first place, and thank the fella. I'm new too, and my gasbike works because of direction gotten from him. This is a fun thing to do, but could be expensive. If you're handy, there's lots of advice here on making components etc. Good luck!
It's cooler to not fall off your bike.
