    Hello all,

    Born and raised from Oklahoma, although lived in KCMO now for the past couple years. Always into cars in the past, but being forced to grow up and focus my budget more towards student loans, bills, etc, I am tinkering on a smaller scale now! :) Currently messing with an old Schwinn High Plains I bought for around $40 and a chinese ebay kit for ~150. I'm sure it'll be disastrous but it at least gives me something to keep busy with while I'm not on my PS4 video gamin.

    Welcome aboard.

    It sounds like you're an automotive tinkerer. If that's the case, then your bike is not likely to be a disaster.

    More likely you'll enjoy yourself.

    (The bike will still frustrate and aggravate you at times. No getting away from that. But that's what makes it 'your' bike.)

    Howdy & welcome!!

    Keeping busy while tinkering on mechanical things is much more gratifying than getting to the next level of the video game of the day. They haven't come out with the game that's got the 'wind in your face and bugs in your teeth' experience.............yet.

    Well, just for an update, it wasn't as disastrous as I figured it would be. As far as what I learned? Ehhh, too rich of a fuel mixture to start, given spark plug sucks, overall pretty easy process to build one of these though. Everything worked just fine for my 1st build, fired right up the first try and ran just fine.
