    Greetings all in motor bike land. I am new to the forum. I have been motorcycling basically my whole life, road raced middle weight superbike for 3 seasons. Grew up on a bmx bike and then road bikes on and off for a decade. Living in Tucson Arizona I see motorized bikes everywhere and have been really wanting to build one. I have worked as a mechanic here and there thru life so I ordered a China girl, the 66cc Raw Racer. I plan on building the whole bike on the very light weight side of things. At the last bicycle shop i worked we built a record setting 6.3 lb road bike that now has over 10,000 miles on it, so it's a working proof of concept. After getting the motor and bike reliable I will work on shedding weight. Me and the bike haha. End goal is to get her under 40lbs and still be solid, reliable and aerodynamic. Well I will work on posting pics of the build, probably in the race section and look forward to contributing to the forum.

    Welcome,

    It sounds like you have the skills and will enjoy building your new light weight MB.
    Be warned it sounds like you are also a prime candidate to become addicted to this hobby.brnot

    As Bobby said (warned) these things are addictive. Build one, you'll want another.

    Anyway, welcome to the forum and show us pictures of your lightweight build. Good luck, have fun and ride safe.
