I've been lurking for months now, finally time to join.

Building a mid/early twenties French motorized bicycle tribute/replica :confused: based on Automoto designs of the period. With other manufacturers ideas considered along the way.

Will be using as much curbside discarded stuff as possible. So far I have the frame I want (mostly) along with all the bicycle parts. For an engine, since I am dealing with all discarded items, I have 2 Briggs and 2 tecumseh engines, I intend to use the Briggs.

More details and pics later. This will be a slow build as I gather parts and knowledge. The best part, though, is learning along the way.

I have learned so much from this site, hopefully I can contribute in some way.

"Will be using as much curbside discarded stuff as possible."
Welcome to the forum. To me, one of the most fun things about
building a motorized bike is repurposing odd objects for making brackets, housings, etc.
