    1. 0 bikes

    4. 3 or more bikes

    I was just curious as to how many motorized bikes people tend to own, especially when the build a bike bug bites you? So how many MB's do you own? And why if you feel like explaining?

    1. because i can't even get this one working to a self satisfactory level. eventually i'll probably build my mother and maybe my sister one, and then i should have a good bit of practice and i'll make myself another.

    Almost done with number two. Minor air leak to deal with, waiting for a new tank, but it runs. My wife hates them both, but I fully intend to force her to ride one this summer.

    i've got 2 running bikes, one i'm building to raffle off (hopefully) and 4 potential bike projects.

    and there's another one in the planning stages, but it's top secret.

    perfect is what i'm aiming for ;) but my luck is about as good as the craftsmanship of the chinese motor i bought lol. just re-tapped the exhaust stud mount cause the one from the factory was awful. next is getting a tensioner so i don't have any chain rub, wanted to go tensioner-less but i don't think its possible on my worksman :(

    i will prevail though ^_^

    Right now I have almost 30 bicycles, (motorized & unmotorized.) ;)

    ATM I have 2 HT's but I have aspirations to build a 4-stroke GEBE in the near future.
    I want long haul reliability and the ability to climb the hill that I live on top of. I hope a GEBE will climb a hill gradient that is no fun to walk up.....

    When do I have the time to work on them all? They sort of sit and look at me. Only put dpwn 3 on the poll, those are the motorized ones.
