noob doing research in federal way

  1. im here to do my reading, im an avid bike enthusiast and i just moved to Washington and i had to leave my beloved moped at home. i was looking into getting a motorcycle and ive been looking around and figured that i was just going to build what i want. i was going to get a cheap kit and put it into one of my bikes now and see how i like it and make notes on things that need to be changed for better high speed handling, looks etc. etc. and just whip my own bike out. ive been looking at vintage bikes from the early 1900's for inspiration for my creation.

    i was up until recently a professional metal fabricator so i plan on making my own bike to strap and engine into.

    here are a few of the bikes i have now

    Welcome to MBc, those sure are some great "donor" bikes! I'm sure you will find lots of help and inspiration here.

    Hi!
    I'm from Tacoma, WA. Welcome aboard! I hope you consider coming out to Ocean Park for our first national MB.c Rally August 30th & 31st... Nice James there, my friend has one that he just got running (love the Villiers engines), and was that a Moto Guzzi?!? I also work with metals, and collect old vintage bicycles. A pleasure to meet you.

    Hey Penguin...

    That 4th and 5th bike down leaves ALOT of room for a good sized engine setup if you used it!

    Those old bikes had styling I must say, kinda like the classic cars of old!
