    Now that I am retired and have the luxury of time, I can attempt to do something that I've wanted to do since I was a kid.

    I have and old Sears bike laying around and got a deal on a 25cc homelite weedwacker that I couldn't pass up.

    By goals are:

    1. Build this motorbike without burning the garage down.

    2. Ride this bike without killing myself or losing control of several of my major body functions.

    3. Have fun without my wife knowing exactly where I am.

    After reading a great many threads on this forum, the only question I have is...
    are these bikes really "chick magnets" ?

    Seriously, there is a lot of great information here and many ideas that are quite thought provoking, and I thank all of you who took the time to post and share.

    Welcome to the forum. I'd add a motor from a kit if you do not have fabrication experience.
