Welcome Doc Ziggy,
I am also new here. I just completed my 1st build. If you are mechanically inclined and have basic tools, building a motorized bicycle is not that difficult.
In 2006, I purchased a brand new Harley Davidson Heritage Softail Classic which I modified and turned it into a 1948 retro Harley. Now I'm into building motorized bicycles.
My Harley biker buddies all made fun of me when I built my motorized bicycle. Now some of them want me to help them build a motorized bicycle. I like the old school look and my bicycle build replicated that of a 1903 Harley. I actually had more fun when building my retro looking motorized bicycle than I did when I pimped out my big ass Harley
Many of my friends and neighbors ask me why I like building motorized bicycles. I simply tell them that when completed, they are a piece of art
Am now in process of building a "Captain America" tribute motorized bicycle.
