    ...On the side of the road! i had ordered my engine kit, and didnt know what sort of bike i would be using. my friend, Adam (bigtrucker2007 on the forum) called me and said there was a bike on the side of the road (by the trash cans and under other various things) in his neighborhood, perfect for an engine. all it needs is a rear innertube. eventually a couple of new tires, and some cruiser handlebars will be added. everything is in working order and is in great shape. its like new.

    Good find, you'd be surprised how many bikes are out there "FREE" just for the asking. We needed parts, and I didn't feel like driving 40 miles and buying new. I put a want ad on Craigslist and they called me.

    That's a nice looking bike! I like that color. When I get my engine broken in, running right, and setup how I like I'm planning on giving her a makeover. I'm debating between a vintage rat-rod look or the General Lee.....

    That orange may have just tipped the scales....or maybe I should build a 2nd bike.....

    do the General Lee, or at least do that one first... rat rods seem somewhat common

    That orange did tip the scales.

    Hazard County here I come!
     
  6. I found the bike I put my motor on in the ditch across the road. None of the locals owned so I called the police, they picked it up. About two months later they called up and said they were going to bring it to my house cause we found it.

    I don't have any pics of before I put the motor on, so this is the day after I first put it on.
