    I haven't messed with my bike since Christmas I'm ashamed to say. I'm at the point where I'm not sure if I should just shelve it for a later date, or continue ahead at a snails pace.

    I am working on a motorized build, and came across this build off. Looks like it may have died down a little. Lets get this going again, that is if you don't mind a new guy joining in. Here is what I have so far, and I am working on it regularly. "Is there anyone out there" lol

    That is so cool! Love the car and the bike!

    I worked on my bike yesterday. I fabricated my seat post and the crown on the forks. My next steps are the gas tank, fenders, and details, then paint. April is coming quick lol. Here are a couple pics, of how far I got.

    I'm sad to say it but my project is officially dead. I've just been too busy with other stuff.

    I'm cancelling me in the build as well. Getting a new truck and cleaning house, not much room to deal with building another motor bike.

    Good luck guys!

    Well with all the projects going on, I did get a motor on a frame. Nothing to hot to look at but runs solid and strong. Couldnt pull the trigger on motorizing my Dyno stretch. she is just to much fun to peddle around. At any rate, my hat is off to all that completed your projects! ride safe :D

    Is it too late to join this build-off? I'm converting an old vertical shaft lawnmower motor into a horizontal so I can make my moto-bike!
