    Hey Skip, I'm in Bristol. What kind of setup do you plan on building? It's pretty hilly here in Ct. & I'm a big guy so I also ordered Sick Bikes kit for my build.

    Thanks BlueGoat, I will be sure to post my build in detail.

    Terrence, Yes it gets COLD here, I hope to get to log some miles before it snows!

    I plan on a cruiser ala Schwinn, Columbia, etc, I plan on riding it to work and just cruising the neighborhoods. I can avoid most of the hills and the rest Ill peddal up like I do already :grin:

    Hey Little John, I built a 66cc Cruiser bike about 1-1/2 ago, A blast to ride, but please be patient, these 2cycle motors take a few tanks to fully break in. Mine finally has enough power to take me up some pretty steep hills in Oakville where I live. Just remember to always check for loose bolts, I lost one of my gas tank straps, last weekend. Try to use lock tite on prone areas that loosen. I learned my lesson! Any way enjoy your build. I did mine in a weekend taking my time.. Take care and welcome! Strato-blaster---John
