Default Re: Building a mono-shock frame to mount any size tire or engine.

you cant weld chromoly with mig anyway, but you might end up with a ridiculously heavy frame using carbon steel. how thick of tubing did you buy? this is very interesting, not something i would try myself though. i would buy a motorcycle at this point, for what you want out of a motorized bicycle, but its a great challenge, plus how many people can say they really made their bike from the ground up with raw materials? thats awesome.

i started with a frame and am fabricating everything i possibly can cuz im cheap and got more time than money sometimes haha. just a stick welder, grinder and drill press plus common tools get er' done. i hate to pay for something i can make
some people say that a motorbike defeats the purpose of a bike. i tell them to get a flintstone's car.
