Default New, in UK


I'm totally new to your world (motorbicycling, not Earth) but have owned and enjoyed some old motorbikes and cruiser cycles so have been in your orbit.

I recently saw a beautifully put together electric cruiser for sale on Ebay, over here in the UK, based on an early Harley. It blew my mind and with some frenzied and over excited research I soon discovered all of the fantastic stuff you chaps are doing. I'd like to get myself some of it, and will certainly be needing help.

I'd like to put together an electric board track style bike, maybe on a Ruff Cycles frame. Immediate problems include a) lack of experience and ability and b) I'm in the UK and as with most of the things that float my boat, there seems to be less going on over here.

So I'm keen to know; whether there are any UK based builders over here who might help me, whether there are any dealers for parts such as Monark here, and if I'll be laughed off the forum for asking some very basic and fundamental questions.

I come to this with no knowledge, but a profound desire to be involved, and a respect for the incredible rolling art that's on show here.

Thanks in advance


Shropshire, England
