    Hi Everyone.

    Just signed up today, I have been interested in gas powered bikes for awhile & decided it's time to research it a little more. I am looking to purchase a bike & motor kit in the next couple weeks & start putting everything together. My main objective is to get the "good stuff" the first time & have something to enjoy for awhile. I am leaning towards the 66cc 2 stroke setup as of right now but that can still change. Thanks in advance for input & ideas.
    I will be sure to use the "search" function as much as possible before asking too many newbie questions. lol

    Just thought I would share a few pics of bikes that sparked my interest. Don't know very much about them other than they are very old frames,
    30-40's. I really like the vintage feel & look these bikes have.

    Come on one of our OC rides and we will fill you in and you
    can see a lot of options.

    Newport Beach is the belly of the beast and one of the
    strictest cities on motorized bikes in CA.
    You better have it all legal on your first ride as their motor
    officers have a cheat sheet on the CA motorized bike laws. lol

    Get your bike together by Sat June 18th and you can cruise or race
    it on the track at Willow Springs.

    Would love to come check out all the bikes. Right now I have a Electra Rat Rod beach cruiser, thinking about building it if possible. Although I am also considering selling it & starting with something else. Are there any rides coming up sooner than June 18th?

    If you wanna ride with me im a local in Lake forest.


    As for an engine kit you will have to buy a kit and ship it to someone you know in another state then ship it here. I used Kingsmotorbikes.com for my order.

    good luck on your build!
