Thumbs up Re: Hello from Germany

By shear luck though, and unusually so in my experience, the paperwork went without a hitch and I managed to get insurance documents, and registration within a few days. Rode it to work for the first time today, and I have to say I haven't had as much fun going to work as that for a long time.

I can feel that this is a hobby I could seriously get addicted to though. Some of the modifications Ive seen are fantastic, and really spark the imagination.

Just need to find a way of doing it without the wife getting too upset.
Welcome to the forum Johnboy, again!

Like WildBill suggests definitely build her one, if not Gasoline / Petrol powered, then an Electric powered bicycle.

Just make sure you build her, ( Your Wife ) a Trike maybe a Stretch Cruiser Trike, as an Electric powered she'd never have to listen to a gas engine, and she'd not be annoyed by the sound of a gas engine.

Again, Welcome to the forum.

Peace Crazy Horse.
P.S. Builders check this thread for in depth info for Horizontal 4-stroke Honda crf50 Pitbike / Dirtbike / Atv engines:

These engines work best used for motorizing the Stretch Cruisers & Chopper builds.
