With the increased interest in building our own bikes it might be time to go for a home brew or alternate engine section.

Perhaps under the DIY category we could have a running UTube links thread
where interesting innovations could posted FBO. (for the benefit of the forum)

There is so much good material noobs should see there that a data base of such
video clips could increase their learning curve with ease and dampen the redundant
questions in the future. (I see it coming) :eek:

ok i renamed the homebuilt section to
DIY Home Built Motorized Bicycle (non kit)

as far as redundant questions. remember the average age group of motorized bicycle riders is not of the computer age and most of them including me are just learning to use the computer. they join and want a question answered and do not know how to use the search function and stuff but will in time. so i do not mind it and try to answer the questions and give a link to the answer more in depth. we all have to remember when we first joined a forum and help each other by answering question even if they have been asked time and time again. thats the whole reason for this forum is to help each other

Didn't know there was a thread going on this subject, until now.
Been brewing for a little over a year now, just Lager.
I run two x 23 litre fermenters full-time and have managed to make and consume 62 batches of 54 x 375ml bottles.
Love it, and to think that I wasted all that money buying beer before my enlightenment.
Good home brew &@%$s on the commercial stuff.
Had a couple of bad batches early on, but nothing but nice, clear beer for a year now.
Hobbies:
1. Making home brew.
2. Drinking home brew

Been brewing beer over 30 years. My grandmother taught me. She made beer during prohibition. I've had a few bottles of beer and wine blow up on me. I always hated loosing good bottles.
Hey any of you guys build a home brew motorbike?
