    Hi all you wacky riders - My name is Rob and I am working away on my first build, a Skyhawk I bought on-line.

    I should have read through the Forums BEFORE I encountered problems... and I would have saved some time and effort, but I am learning much, and feel confident that after completed I will know the entire system inside out, and be ready with the right tools and spare parts for service work and road repairs. I came here with a specific clutch question which I found the answer to.

    The insstructions with the Skyhawk are basic, leaving a coule of things for granted that anyone would know how to, but I am thick headed and stubborn too. Therefore I had everything installed, adjusted, removed, checked and re-installed at least twice and some components more than twice!

    I have had more than a dozen motorcycles my adult life, but over 60 years it is time to slow down a bit and quit paying the high insurance and licencing costs, which are free (for now) here in Ontario, Canada.

    Welcome to the site. It's great not having to pay rego costs for these bikes!
