So after being a member here for nearly two years I wanted to show what my building skill set was then to what it is now because of this website and the advice I have gotten over the past couple years.

Also a little inspiration to anyone new coming into motorbicycling.

Here's my own journey, from 3 years ago to today:

3 years ago (Top speed, <30 mph, it was a mess!):


2 years ago (first non-kit build, I still didn't really know what I was doing, got gearing all wrong, used an aluminum frame which lasted about 2 months, etc. Top speed 36 mph or so.)


My current ride (first built 1 year ago, picture shows more recently improved version, top speed, 41 mph) :


And finally, my current project (at this point I am basically building a motorcycle, top speed, 70 mph):


Well, that was a fun trip down memory lane. I've certainly come a long way.
