    Hey everyone.

    My name's Andy, and I'm a Chief in the U.S. Coast Guard. Married with 2 kids, we are currently stationed in Kodiak, Alaska (our 5th tour in Alaska). I'm from Northern Michigan originally.

    Have always loved bicycles and motorcycles. Used to race road bicycles back in the 80's. I ride motorcycles now, mostly dual sport but I've sold all my 2-wheelers and now only own a 2007 Ural GearUp.

    Anyhow...I've been itching to build my own motorbike, and I think I found the perfect frame - the Worksman frames. Seems like a fairly popular frame around this board, so expect some questions from me in the near future!

    Thanks.
    Spicy

    Ah, another north lander. Welcome to the forum. I went to the Travis City area many years ago to pick up an Airstream trailer. Nice country and I really like the upper peninsula... Ishpiming, etc. Beautiful Lake Michigan... Indian country.
