    Thanks for the kind words, Chad...It's been quite awhile, but here's a few.

    I completely forgot about that one!..I remember I wanted to even go more...But that bike had parts flowing in from all over..You guys did a fantastic job on that bike.

    This is the bike that fork came from.

    Oh yeah! Man the tire poking through the rack is so cool! +the fork does look sweet.

    Those are all killer...typecasting makes total sense...let's see another please...you should definitely bend something.

    I built a kickbike last year. As I get older, I sometimes don't feel comfortable riding a bicycle. Between back problems, and arthritis problems, and knee replacements, and numerous medical conditions, I just don't always feel safe on a bike. I've been using a scoot or kickbike for the last few years..It's faster than walking. It's easy for stop and go. It's also great exercise (I need it)...I was grateful for the acceptance of last years build...This may be my last build, so there's one I've been wanting to do for a few years. ..Remember..It "started" out as a bike.:giggle:

    I'm truly grateful for the acceptance and tolerance of my last few builds...This is hands down the best community on the internet, and not building "bikes", I've really missed it....So if you ever plan on building one of these, like building bikes, there are a few basic rules to follow. I'll be pointing them out as the build progresses....Thanks!

    This is what I want...Long..low..light

    I've been looking through some old pics...I didn't realize I've been doing kickbikes for so long. I know I used to bike ride 90% of the time and kick 10%...Kind of reversed now. It's pretty hard to look "cool" on a scooter, especially when you're built like Magilla Gorilla. The last two pics are 1 or 2 years old..The first pic is forum member "Greylock", and myself at the first MA Human Powered Vehicle Festival in 2011.

    Very cool. I can’t ride bikes, either, at least what the general population thinks I should be riding (ie, adult-sized). Too much pain to sit on a bike saddle for long periods. My solution? BMX. Great, full-body exercise and no sitting. A kick bike looks like another great solution, too. I considered one for myself but I’ve got a bad ankle that would be really vulnerable kicking.

    By the way, you know better than to worry about looking cool. Folks give me the eye being 56 years old on a 20” BMX, but they keep it to themselves (probably jealous). Scooters are fun and if people don’t like ‘em, you know what they can go and do.

    Look forward to following this build.

    Two wheeled creativity is cool regardless of whether or not a chain is involved. I agree with you about the community we have here. Glad to see some other older names return in this BO too.

    I'm liking your next design. The rear end reminds me of my friend @kanar 's Pimp Garage Streamliner frame.

    The two side tubes will extend beyond the back wheel, like dual exhaust, or might have tail lights inside.
