    New to the motor bike world. Looking at purchasing one from Speedster Motors up in Keslo, WA. Excited to have a new means of transportation.

    Keep in mind that engine size is restricted to 35cc's in OR. Act accordingly.

    Thanks for the heads up on that. Seems larger engines have not been a problem but I will be careful.

    Got the bike together and cruising now:

    I freaked out the neighbors. They saw me pull up to my house in my leather jacket, sun glasses, and flat black 1/2 helmet. They didn't recognize me and asked if I needed help....

    A few things to do still. I guess I need to secure the exhaust.... is this necessary?

    I think I'm going to cut the front fender right where it goes under the forks so all that shows is the rear section.

    Need to figure out if I'm going to do sidebags or what. The stock rack is pretty flimsy. I'll have to some searching and see what others have done.
