    just built my first motor bike this weekend, was surprised by how cheap and shoddy the kit was, also the huffy bike's aren't what they were when i was a kid. anyway, got it all built and it runs. being the tinker that i am i see lots of improvements that will be made on the next one. looking forward to being a part of the forum.

    Cam,
    Welcome and you said the magic words..."the next one". That's one of the problems with motorbikes; they're like potato chips. You can't stop at just one. Have fun, ride careful.

    didn't know there was a need for the dmv, rode past a cop yesterday, he didn't give me any looks. yeah. i have plans for the next one already. i'm thinking an olive drab army scout bike. can't wait to get started on it. although i will be making some improvements to the throttle, rear sprocket and chain tensioner.

    Welcome from North eastern Ahia....Ashtabula county to be more exact.

    It only takes two cans of krylon to make a military bike!

    P.S. three years and a few thousand miles and no problems with the police.

    that looks good. i was thinking of doing the engine flat black, using flat white for a star and some army logos and building a rack on the rear for a small jerry can and maybe a trenching shovel.

    Yeah most police don't mind at all. I talked to one for about 20 minutes before she realized. Oh and when she realized, it was because I told her about it. Haha.. Good luck man. These things are too much fun!

    I like what you did with the krylon paint. How does it hold up with the gas? Thought i would use it on my tank.

    I never had a problem with the tank, engine or exhaust (except the first 4" or so) Just let it dry for a full day.

    It's not even high temp paint.
