    hello everyone.
    about 5 years ago i bought a 1903 felt and always thought it was perfect for a motor.
    just now i was looking around on line and found this site.
    you guys seem pretty friendly and plenty knowledgeable.
    so here i am!
    i am looking at the ridley engine.
    i am a scrawny 140 lb. old fart
    so i don't need lotsa power.
    and i love the looks of the engine.
    i will just use this for puttering around my small town and the county road i live on.
    anyway
    thanks for having me.
    bill

    Welcome to the forum Bill, glad you could join us! Durango is a neat town with beautiful scenery and world class cyclists, I hope they don't mind motorized bikes there......they shouldn't as some of the locals also enjoy moto-cross.

    Have fun with your build and feel free to ask questions as you will find your answers here on the forum.

    Cheers

    Welcome to the forum, Bill. There are a few of us Colorado based old guys who happen to like hot rods and motorized bicycles. You're in good company.
