Default Re: Greeting from the gulf coast of Florida!

Thanks, Tom

I bought a Roxie donor bike from a guy who told me that all his men's cruisers are bought up by someone from Ft. Meyers who motorizes, and then sells them.
Sounds like a good way to turn a fun hobby into work
Either way, the more MB's on the road, the better!

A friend gave me a early 70's RD 250 motor that I've pulled apart to see how it works, and giving it a bath.

I bet it would fit in a Basman frame nicely if I stiffened it up a bit.

That might be a little ambitious for my first build.... pretty much a motorcycle.

Maybe I'll start with something a little more reasonable : )

The search is on, and I'll bet acquiring all the parts is half the fun!
