    Hello everyone, hope your good...

    Im Aziz from the U.K and i thought you might want to see some pictures of my ride and a link to an amateur video i took and uploaded to youtube. Ive seen some of the bikes posted here and i think theyre all really cool.

    This was my first bike i built, and ive learnt alot since then through many trial and error scenarios. Its not that good compared to the bikes ive seen here but it does its job and i love my bike.. I go everywhere with it, work, shops and cruising too.

    Im planning to build a third one soon, the second one was better but was sadly stolen, will post some pictures for everyone when im done..

    Will post pictures and video tommorrow, have to be a member for one day and post at least one post before i can..

    I just realised you have allready seen it tom, and luke too from the uk, while i was reading through the forums.

    It so expensive for us to get an engine over here in the uk, for example
    cost of engine $225
    shipping $130
    customs duty $70

    Half decent bike cost us around $200

    Then you have to get custom parts ordered that dont come with the engines like chrome intake manifold, throttle with integrated kill switch and other bits and bobs. Then you have to pay for shipping for all those extra parts, Hence the price you see..

    Anyway im happy i found everyone here, this site and the people here are amazing....

    My next engine is on its way and im looking for a bike dont know wether to choose alluminium or a steel frame, anyone got any ideas please..

    What material would be best for less vibration thanks..

    Looks good. I like all the detailed photos. You may have to pay more for the engine, but y'all've still got gobs of cool vintage motorcycles (and bicycles) over there.

    To be honest etheric id rather have the freedom to ride my bike anywhere like you guys than have the cool vintages to look at anydays..
