I have been a long time member but am kind of shy by nature so have only read and read and read the forums for the past few years.
I built an e-bay 2-stroke kit on an old mountain bike I had and it was a blast all last summer, both building and riding. Never got brave enough to get more than a mile or so from from home but made it back home all but 1 time
I am possibly going to build a 4-stroke next and have already purchased a Firmstrong "The Chief" cruiser for my next attempt. I may pull the 2-stroke off my mtn bike or go with a 4-stroke kit, really haven't decided yet.
The real reason for this post is to thank everyone on this forum that is so willing to help and put the effort out there to make sure all us new guys have the best possible success. I look forward to many more hrs of reading and learning - and now that I have made a post I may even ask a million and one questions on my next project :
