    Welcome aboard, steamtrac.

    Don't worry about questions. You'll find that the members like to share tips. Though you would be wise to read, read, read. If you do that, then you're a lot more likely to ask the best questions.

    Good luck

    If you live in Germany, you have access to some fine old -timey bike motors. I see them all the time on Germany's E Bay.

    Gruess Dich (greetings to you, in german)! I lived in Solingen back in the 60's where I trained to become
    a Kfz-Mechaniker (auto mechanic). Please tell us a little more about yourself Steamtrac.

    Welcome to der forum. I'll help you build a motorized bike if you can help me do a brake job on my 2006 VW Jetta.
    The brakes on my Corvette were much easier to fix!

    For anyone interested in seeing the old motors , go on E Bay, scroll to bottom, & select Germany, & then type in " Hilfsmotor." They usually have some nice older ones on there.
