Default Sold My Bike

I just sold my Schwinn Jag with a Stinger motor on it. Plans now are to concentrate on my eGO electric cycle and then build a 4 stroke board tracker. I never was as happy with the bike as I wanted to be. I really thank the people on this fourm for all the help in sorting it out.

That's part of the fun of it. Always the "next build"
worst apocalypse ever

I'm just the opposite- I'm thinking of selling my scooter next spring, just to concentrate on my two builds- even though it's a little faster and a smoother ride

as I've now torn apart a 50 down to pistons and rings, put in sound dampeners and played around with carbs, I'm starting to appreciate the simplistic beauty of the China Girl- I'm not much intimidated by the repairs, which are relatively very cheap compared to other transportation- now that I'm finally out of my flooded house in Indiana, these bikes are saving me all kinds of gas and miles and wear and tear on my car- in a metro area, and it's fun.

If I eventually get out of this one bedroom apartment on a busy - but bike-laned street- the bikes will be easier to transport and hold on to. Plus I keep the builds inside, even though upstairs, and the scooter has to stay out and covered

I still prefer to pedal really, but have a lot of tension and fatigue if I do much at my age- 57.
