    This bike is awesome! It's so low, you'll tear the pockets out of your jeans! That tractor seat looks perfect on it too!

    Build on, brother!

    Cheers,

    The little rust bomb on the left is a Yamaha Razz my buddy did up. Looks like the same engine. He uses a tire iron to hand start it! We welded a lug nut on to the kick start shaft. Just an idea.

    Super cool build though. Another buddy of mine is building something similar. I love it!

    I really like the rust rat vespa looking bike above too.
    Every time I take Fugsley out, at one person asks me where the motor is, Maybe I should ad a motor to the back?

    Re: EL THUNDER ( this post is now dead)

    I will not be building this bike with a motor. I have no time to do that and so this bike will return to the bike forum and will be rode with pedals and no power. I am trying to get most of my bikes done and out of here as I need to get on with other things in my life. thanks all for looking at this but soon you will be able to follow this build in the other section.

    Moment of silence.......

    I think that later on down the road somewhere possibly you'll decide to remotorize this thing. If we lived closer I would def come over and give a helping hand!

    Happy pedal pushin!

    Re: EL THUNDER

    thanks, when this bike gets done it will be up for sale. the motor is going to someone else. so as soon as I finish this and the other two I will be pretty much out of building bikes. I still have a couple that I will keep and needs to be finnished and I will post em as I build.
    I have other things I want to do and I need my shop cleared out of bikes. so look at the bikes build for the rest of the build on EL Thunder.

    I just love the little rust bomb too. Is there anyway you could post some more details of these kind of scooters ?
