OK, SoCal old guy here. Been building Harleys and cars for decades and now my adult son and I are playing with motorized bicycles. Did one to see how they ride, building a second for my son to use as a daily rider. Also have a project bike that will have a vintage feel but that's going to take some time and fabrication. Here's a shot of the first one we did. Pretty basic but with a 49cc it hauls my rather large 280 pound butt down the road at 30 MPH+ with no problem.

That's all for now. Thanks for reading.

I have a 1947 Knucklehead that I'm going through for the first time in thirty years (I'm a procrastin...), a 1950 Harley 45 Solo, a 1966 Harley trike, a 1956 Harley 165 Hummer and a 1977 Yamaha XS1100 that tried to kill me (it's the Christine of motorcycles). The long term motorized bike project will be going in the direction of a pre-twenties Harley. Back when they had pedals too. Gonna have to fabricate a front end and a gas tank and probably a bunch of small stuff. But it should be fun. Anyway, thanks all for the welcome. You'll find, like most do, the biggest problem is getting me to shut up.
