    Welcome! But just think of all of the fun you would miss if you bought the rebel - unknown answers...heck, unknown questions - missing parts (I swear I laid that down right THERE!).

    I bought a Whizzer - tons of questions from me - but I am learning thanks to everyone here - and I am making her my own - customizing and improving - it's been very fun and I am just beginning!

    Welcome aboard!

    wont be putting pixs up for a while, i ordered a bike and it wont work, the top bar is too low, i cant return it unless i exchange it and i cant find a bike with everything i want in 1 place.

    i already paid 50 dollars in shipping, i'll have to pay it again to send it back, and then again to get another one. oh and of course a 25% restocking fee. another 100.00

    i went out looking for another bike where i can just switch the cheap stuff for the good stuff and then sell the hybrid afterwards.

    but nothing matches up anywhere, at least in the bikes i looked at.

    I spent 400 on the bike and it's worthless.

    ****, i'm going to see if i can cut the **** top bar off and reweld it 4 inches higher.
    i'm not spending another 200 on shipping and restocking.

    i'll buy a wally mart bike before i did that, or a huffy cheapo .

    heck for that 200 I could buy me a nifty mig welder and and mask and do it myself .

    which isnt a bad idea ?

    i made the mistake of buying an expensive cheap bike and the best i can say is go to your garage sales and second hand stores...the older the can always sand it and paint it...again good luck..sorry for you probs too..

    except this gun i had, i took it apart and had an extra piece, and it fit upside down, backwards, forward and upside down forward.

    so i threw it away.

    i'm just going to have a pro welder cut and weld the bar at 14 inches.

    just a simple set back, then i'll have a premo bike
  11. What kind of bike is it? What engine?

    Welcome to MBc,btw.
