    Hello, Everyone!
    My Name is Justin. I'm from Costa Mesa,Ca. I have been Lurking for about a week on this site. Now i have decided to come out of the shadows and say "Hi!!"
    I would like to thank you all for your inspiration. I was going to just put a motor on a bike and be done with it, but Now i'm starting a Board Track Racer Project! woot! woot!
    This was suppose to just be a to and from work thing but after seeing all of your YouTube Videos at the track i want to join in on all the fun.


    Hope to see you all soon.

    Here are important questions to consider when building or buying for yourself or others:

    1) What is the predominant riding terrain?
    (Level ground, hills, asphalt or dirt etc...)

    2) What type of physique does the primary rider have?
    (Large, small, short, tall or health issues etc...)

    3) What will the rider's local laws allow and require them to have?
    (Lookup and personally read these laws.)

    4) What kind of bike is being motorized?
    (Mountain, road, whizzer or recumbent etc...)

    5) What is the bike to be used for?
    (Shows, long trips, around town, off road or racing etc...)

    6) How much of a budget is to be used for the build or buy?
    (All at the start or as you can afford projects etc...)

    Seek the answers to these questions in order to get the most out of the bike you're building or buying. We're here to help with any questions you may have. The purpose of the "Questions to Consider" is not to overwhelm or confuse you. Rather help you focus in on what will work best for you and help you develop a building and/or buying philosophy. This site has lots of people who can help you but the only way they can is by asking questions. Any one of the questions to consider somebody here can help you with.

    A fool never learns from their mistakes.

    A smart person learns from their mistakes.

    A wise person learns from the mistakes of others.

    Good luck with your build or buy.

    Welcome to MBc, Justin. Now that you have introduced yourself, be sure to read all you can, including the 'Stickies' at the top of every Forum. They contain a lot of information. For example, ‘Sticky’ by Al.Fisherman has 20 or so links to “How To…” threads, and important pages for you to follow. ‘Sticky’ by Anton "Forum Rules and Infractions” is a must read about how you are expected to Conduct yourself. However, read all of them, and be sure to use the search feature. Almost every question you might have has already been asked and answered someplace here. If you are still stumped with a certain problem, post your question in the proper Forum and I am sure you will get an answer. Good Luck to you.

    Patrick
