Re: Old Newb in Wisconsin
Sorry to be late welcoming you but better late than never, right?
There are a few of old hot rodders here who have discovered the allure of motorized bicycles. I was at a car show back in 07 when I saw the first Chinese 2 stroke (China Girl) conversion and I was stung from that moment. Just finished building number 12.
As for sourcing parts; if you're Internet savy, just spend some time and search. You'll find what you're looking for and when you do and need opinions just ask. We'll do our best to steer you right.
With your talents, experience and equipment, you'll have no problems whatsoever building a safe reliable bike. I'm certain you have one but if not pick up an inch pound torque wrench. It'll pay for itself quickly. I assure you.
Keep us informed on your progress and when help is needed we'll be here for you.
Good luck, have fun and ride safe.
