    HI all..

    I'm from a little town called Bay City,MI. I'v been into drag racing all my life. I used to work at Tri City Dragway in the 70's .. Met some of the big names.. I'm a electrician. I ride a Harley .. But i have grandkids now as i'm 58 years old now. So to get my grandkids into what i like .. Bikes.. MOTOR bikes. I built a 49cc Schwinn OCC Chopper bike for me to ride untill they want to ride it. I like anything with a motor on it. Well that's enough about me. so here i am ..

    Thank you fellow Bike Builders.. I'm going to buy another one Sat. and work on building another 80cc motor bike chopper. I have a 92 harley sportster that i ride. I did some work on that to make it look the way i wanted it. Then i bought a 110cc OCC web mini chopper that i'm working on.. I turned the foot shifter into a hand shifter. so i have my occ pedal bike done. so i'm going to start another one. And again thanks for welcoming me to the site..

    Interested in seeing pics of your builds Skullman.

    I remember sticking a table knife in a wall socket 50+ years ago; so while I'm not an electrician, I have expermented with electricity. What a small world it is indeed.
