    Hello everyone,Kip here.I've just joined this forum as I've found a new hobby.I've been a tinkerer all my life.I've built custom harleys and many tadpole motorcycles.Resently I got the itch to build a tadpole bicycle so I cobbled some parts from 3 different bike together and have had so much fun riding it around my wife asked me if I would build her a bicycle with a motor on it,as she has a bad knee she worried that if she went to far she would'nt be able to make it back and the motor would get her home.So I ordered a motor kit and bought a bike.1 week later recieved the motor kit the next day I could'nt believe the thrill I got the first time I peddled that bike and popt that clutch and that little pea shooter came to life!
    I look forward to contributing to this forum and enjoying the projects that others have built.
    I just turned double knickles but feel like 15 cents.Lata.Kip

    Welcome to the forum Kip. I took up this hobby after retireing as a machinist for 37 years. It has been an absolute blast. I built six Motorized bikes the first winter. I to built one for my wife (A chopper bike) and she absolutly loves it.
    Beware this hobby can be very addicting.
