    Hi all, just picked up a china clone for cheap so just doing sum research. I've always liked two wheels, some of past bikes included- DK sob, 62 ironhead chopper, intruder, kz650 twin, 03 Honda crf50 (highly modded), currently a 77 Yamaha xs650 resto/mod


    I'm really liking the board tracker builds, especially the sportsman flyer

    It's been a week since I've been on the motorcycle. Hittin up friends, the misses, Walmart and gas stations have all been on the whizzer clone. Not even the van.

    Damn how did I not know about these wonderful two wheel joys? So simPle and easy to transverse the city, a lil chain lock and yer set.

    I'll work on uploading sum pics by weekend

    Cool! Looking forward to your pics.

    Yea, they are a blast. Folks reactions are great too.

    Have you found any MBers near you yet? Group rides are really great.
