    Hello from Chicago. I am starting my first build after lurking for awhile. I am almost a certified old fart(turning 50 in March) and ever since I had an old cobbed together Schwinn . when I was 13 I have enjoyed motorbikes. I ordered a motor kit from spookytooth and should be here this week. I have a old schwinn cruiser that its going on so I will post the progress as it happens. Seems like all the answers are within this forum if I dig around a bit bob

    Welcome to the forum. I guess I became a COF a few months back.

    Which Chicago burbs are you near? I'm out in Kendall County, looking for people to ride with out here come springtime. I'm also old, except when I'm riding, then I'm a kid again.

    I know there's a big one in Warrenville, but I haven't been there in a few years. Tell me where!

    Welcome! I got 30 years till i'm an old fart. I put on a HP 66/80cc. You can get a lot of help from youtube also- plenty of good (and bad) movies. Looking forward to your progress!
