    Hi gang! I've been browsing the forum for quite some time. Lots of great info, tricks, tips do's, and don'ts. My current project is a Nirve Street King 3 speed. It will be powered by a 66cc Skyhawk with modifications such as Jims billet head, Dellorto carb, SBP shift kit and a stronger rear hub just to name a few. I've owned a lathe for about 15 years now, so fabrication is nothing new for me. I'm not looking to build a rocket ship, just something for cruising comfortably around town. If I feel like kicking butt, all I have to do is hop on my 1200 Sportster! I've been bitten by the MB bug ever since I came across this forum by accident. Cool stuff!

    Bob

    Bob I know that country, I was at Loring from 1969 to 1973. Like Paul I don't miss the winters although I had a lot of fun playing in the snow with an old Skidoo. Welcome.
