Default Re: Greetings from Florida

I have a bit more mechanical experience than your average noob. I've had friends with mopeds, scooters, motorbicycles, three wheelers and quads, and I've helped work on a few of them. That's actually what's steering me away from the basic kits. Watching my friends work on theirs more than they rode them. I have a fairly good idea in my head of what type of bike I want, a couple of my friends built customs so I'm well aware of what the process entails. I'm also a large man, so I know the basically kits won't haul me around at a decent clip or get me up hills without a lot of modifications, which aren't worth the hassle when there are better engines that make more power right out of the box. I'm looking hard at a 79cc predator. I'm well practiced in bicycle mechanics also. I've built my own wheels in the past, and I will most likely be building heavy duty custom wheels.
