Re: noob from the bay area lookin for a good time
Hey there Darian. I just built my first motorized bike myself. I bought a cheap china kit from Ebay for about 130 bucks and I was a little worried it would be a piece of junk but so far its been a blast. Time will tell but thus far I haven't had any real problems but I am still breaking it in.
I think with some high performance parts and some work I can turn it into something respectable. Be prepared to spend more money than you originally planned though. I don't think anyone just builds a bike and is happy with leaving it as is. You'll either want to build another one or turn yours into a beast or both.
