thanks it was fun. i built it during the scooter craze for my son just so he would have something different than all the rest of the neighbor hood. the only drawback was the constant upkeep that it needed that he wasn't giving it so i sold it and bought him a new baseball bat.

Well, what kid wouldn't want to trade their bad ass chopper bike with a bicycle motor for a baseball bat? At least the bat is low maintenance...
