    Hey Guys,

    Had an old account- but truly new here(I didn't no I had it)
    I've built 5 bikes in my time and really got into them 2 years ago-

    Im an 18yo Rhode Islander in love with vintage nostalgia- Im a vintage surfboard collector and restorer, vintage bicycle re-claimer, and driftwood artist. I believe in the quality of older pieces and the blood sweat and tears that went into making them- the stories in each dent, paint chip, and crack is incredible in my eyes

    I no my builds are **** compared to most but im only starting out and plan on building more and building quality. Im actually being commissioned to build a bike now- so now is my chance!

    I was told by SlowBalt to get up on here so props to him*** thank you man. And hope to meet many of you, and thanks in advance for all the great knowledge I'll consume by you guys! Great Forum!


    Ill attach some pics of my builds!

    Cheers
    Andrew

    Welcome back. I feel that its more important to build the motorized bike that YOU want, rather than what other members want you to build. I must admit that I often live vicariously through other motorbike builders.
    The e-bike I built looks terrible, but I enjoy riding and tinkering with it. I don't post pics of it but still enjoy discussing ebikes on the forum.

    Welcome. It appears you're past the 'newbie' stage and your bikes are just fine. If they please you, then they are perfect. :)
    I always question when a builder comes here asking for advice about what color to paint their bike, or what looks better or if their build is good enough. Build to suit yourself and who cares what others think? As long as the bike is safe and reliable, it's a good build.

    Thanks for sharing your motorized bikes with us. Keep up the good work.

    Tom

    Hi fellow RIer,
    How's the riding over there on the other side?

    Now that theres just another snow storm or two left the riding is getting pretty good out
    I can't wait to see your ideas on your next build,good luck.

    Thanks guy for the warm welcome!

    First question ever...

    What is the throatiest, low grumbling exhaust out there that would look good on a Harley/Indian replica- I need something that looks good and sounds good

    Cheers,
    Andrew

    hey, small state eh?? you ride mostly in south county?

    I heard the Poo Pipe has a low grumble, don't know if you'll like the looks though.
