Greetings! I'm looking into getting a MB, but I'm not sure if I want to get a DIY kit or one from SpookyTooth cycles. I really like the style and reviews of the SpookyTooth, but I'm also a fair hand with a wrench and like the DIY approach. Any advice you have for me would be greatly appreciated!

Greetings benuntu

To build or not to build . If you have even basic wrenching skills you should probably build your own , using our help . You will get to know your machine and have the satisfaction of building it yourself . You might save Spookytooth for your second bike for the spouse or best friend . I have three motor kits . one is still in the box waiting for inspiration and opportunity . If you don't like what you build you can move the motor to a different bike and try again . If you have the itch and want to ride right away go with the bike you like from Spookytooth . Either way you won't loose , you'll be smiling . .... D.J.

Thanks all for the warm welcome! I think I will go the route of building my own...I do like to tinker. What would you all recommend for an engine kit? I've seen them on eBay, and on several websites...but is there a certain brand to look for. And on the other side of the coin, what should I watch out for?

Thanks again!
