    In order to qualify for a scratch built bike, you have to build it complete. If you use the head tube and bottom bracket from a built bike, that is acceptable, but you have to build the frame. That includes the back triangle. If you post a picture of your build and don't start something within a reasonable time, then your post will be moved to bike talk. When you actually start building a frame, then you can repost. It is also open to any medium you choose to use. This forum was formed to let the people that can scratch build a frame, show off their talents. Thank you

    Kind of a hard call. If you want to build a scratch built bike with tubes from another bike or bikes , then that acceptable. If you want to chop up a couple frames and weld them back together as a burrito or something using the parts that are already welded together , then no. You can do that in the build section.

    Yes . It dosen't matter if you have a motor or not , as long as the frame that you build is from scratch.
