Hello to all. Been lurking several weeks and thought it's time to join in. I have been in the bicycle business since 1982 and am a 5th generation family blacksmith. Years ago I worked in an autobody shop. Between bikes, autobody, and blacksmithing, metal working, tinkering and inventing have been the backbone of my life. I just got into the motor bicycles this year kind of by accident. Had a bicycle customer bring in a hub for me to lace into a rim for a motor bike he was building. To make a long story short, he didn't know how to complete his bike, so he brought it to me to finish. After he took his first test ride, I was immediately hooked. Next day I ordered my own kit and now have 4 motorbikes I ride daily. Talk about an addiction. Loads of fun and very affordable hobby. I'm hoping my knowledge of bicycles and metal working will be beneficial to this great site.
