Re: Do most racers build own bikes?
It's not like people are born knowing how to build and fix things, you can learn. I would suggest getting one of the 2 stroke kits that are super easy to build, and we can help you do it right. If you have no desire to learn, know that no bicycle shops will work on your bike because of liability and motorcycle shops don't have bicycle tools. Ya gotta do the maintainence yourself unless there is one of the few motor bike shops in your city.
some people say that a motorbike defeats the purpose of a bike. i tell them to get a flintstone's car.
