    ..looking to do something a little more interesting. I'v built 3 for friends, sold one, and have two of my own. All run fine. But i'v decided to take on an after winter project and paint my first bike, as well as do a mild wire tuck. I'll be posting about it in general.. Probably make a How-to if it hasn't been done before.

    Knox County lol

    Ya seems like it, lol.

    Ha that is probably my fualt. I'm used to the car forums. A mild wire tuck in car terms is hiding the wires to get a cleaner engine bay. I wasn't sure if it was a universal term.. i guess not lol. I was planning on on drilling holes through the frame. But somebody said to just fiberglass it in, i'm pretty good with fiberglass so i guess thats what i'll be doing.

    drilling a bike frame always seems like a bad idea just another failure point

    Ya i stopped drilling. Ended up with 3 unused holes (covered and painted an hour ago) But its a thick frame and i'm not doing any offroading so it should be fine. It's metal so i should bend if the frame ever starts to break. It wont shadder like carbon fiber. Its a pretty think frame. Three of my buddies sat on the frame today to see if anything would happen. Nothing did. The holes on are the side so there is not a great amount of stress on them.

    Hi -- just joined and have been wondering about the laws in Ohio. From what I've been reading, it sounds like I don't need a special driver's license but do need to register the bike and get a plate. Can you please tell me if this is correct?
