I've got very limited experience with fabricating in metal (done some minor modifications to my streetfighter motorcycle) so I will probably ask a lot of stupid questions .

I will go with a gx200 engine and some kind of torque converter, home fabricated frame, 26'' wheels/rims (I want to go slightly wider then the classic bikes, I have to research how wide I can go 65 or 80mm?), hookworm tires is the plan right now.
Be very welcome, more a European, this is very good, this forum has wonderful people, with many good knowledge in the construction and repair of motor bikes ready to help and solve problems, come doubted these photos and many photos rsss
