    Hi everyone,
    My name is Jason and I am a bike mechanic. I am in the process of building my first motorized bicycle. I have built a 70cc Tomos moped and a couple motorcycles, and more bicycles than I can count, but I am really looking forward to this build.

    My plans for this bike are through the roof right now, I guess I will do a build thread once I decide what I am going to do for sure. The only "for sures" right now are the 700 wheels, the hydraulic breaks, and that it will have a shifter kit.

    Here are a couple pictures of a quick mock up in my basement.

    Look forward to learning and hopefully teaching something on this forum.

    regards,
    Jason

    The frame is an old coast king. the fork is from a giant flat bar road bike.

    I like the frame, flowing lines.

    I will be building up a 3 cross wheelset for it with 29'er rims, I just threw those in to make sure everything would fit with 700s. I dont think I would be that comfortable with the low spoke count of these.
