    Hi and welcome!

    How do you ride your bike when you're legally "blind"?
    I thought blind was you can't see? o_O

    Or do they consider extremely bad vision as blind also? o_O

    Welcome to the forum. It sounds like you're quite capable of building a bike and won't need much help or advice but just know we're here if you do. This is the best source for all things motorbike related. Have fun, ride safe.

    Sounds amazing!
    Would still be difficult to ride I would think but all the best to you!

    And as 2door mentioned, this place is great for help if you need any. But also, if you're looking to ever improve your bikes or handy tips, plenty here.
    I got much help from here also. :)
