    Hello. This is me introducing myself! My name is Chandler and I am 22 years old. I love engines and cars. I am actually a certified Chrysler technician!

    When I was 15 I wanted a means of transportation other than relying on my siblings. I wanted a new project after finishing my pneumatic potato gun so I figured why not one of these motorized bikes! This project made me fall in love with engines and propulsion. The first engine kit i assembled i had basically no tools and little to no experience with engines. It took me about 3 weeks just to get the correct tool to shorten the chain.

    this is a very bad picture of my first bike I assembled. This thing was kick ass and much better than walking haha. I unfortunately left it sit outside for winter and it eventually seized up on me.

    Now 7 years later i want another! I just moved even closer to my work so this is totally a viable option. 100+ mpg sounds good!

    I bought this cruiser off amazon and a flyhorse kit from bikeberry. I am just about done with the assembly and it looks similar to this.

    I am excited to get back into this and will do my best to stay active on this forum to help people out as much as i can!

    Happy motorbiking!

    Welcome to the forum, keep an eye on the fenders. The mounts break from vibration, even some of the most experienced members here have had failures.
