    Hello everyone. I am back to the motorbicycling community. I've been looking at parts for days now dreaming and planning and figuring out ways to afford what I wan. I originally built a cruiser named Cogsworthy out of a 7 speed Schwinn Riverside and an SD kit. Mod I plan to make this spring and summer, if I can sell some of my other toys (go-kart, scooter, etc) include an HD shifter kit from SBP, A Sturmey archer front drum, a peanut tank from imperial cycles, and a ton of other goodies. I'll keep you all updated on the progress of the build. I plan to change him into a bike with medium aped, And a grey frame with red pinstriping! Sexy! :).shft.

    Wow! Because you sound so convincingly new to the forums, I like to say, Welcome to the forums! :p

    Anyways, sounds like a great build ahead of you indeed. Interested to see which grey bike with pinstriping. :)

    Yeah, I don't want to sell, and start over, I'd rather just keep adding on!

    Thanks! I really missed this forum! It's so friendly and there are always bikes to drool over, and people who know what they are doing.

    WB LS614, sounds like a nice build.
    You going to go de-railer or hub gears?

    De-railure, though I'm afraid of eating up the gears, I'm confident that I can get the help needed to install it correctly. I love SBP

    Yes, SickBikes rocks, I am a big fan of gears.
    I like hub gears over derailer though. Cleaner and smoother.

    yeah, still, I'll try it and see what happens, 7 speed cassette is all I got right now. I can't afford a new hub since I got more than $900 planned on other mods! :D :D :D

    yeah, ya know, I was sorta interested in gopeds and stand up scooters, but the cops hate those where I live, so I figure, since I go faster, and it is a more practical mode of transportation than mopeds or scooters (for a 6 foot guy) that motor bicycles are my thing!
