Re: What would you do different?
Well, with my first two bikes probably not build them at all. My last bike, probably a few things. With the bike I'm working on, I'm hoping once it's done I'll say nothing. I'm building this bike from the bare frame up and taking my good old time, and doing my best to make everything the way I want it from the engine to the gearing, the way it looks and rides, the lighting/electronics, going piece by piece so everything is exactly how I want it. I want to be able to put it together and leave it alone. Taking a year to finish it could be a good thing, I've had lots of time to think about how to do certain things and make decisions, search eBay about a thousand times and ask people for advice, now I'm ready to build and in a couple weeks I'll be able to order the last of the parts I need.
