    hi, my name is Vince. From Clarkdale Arizona.I wont take your time now to ask any questions. But only to introduce myself. I have been reading these forums for about a year now. Ok, here we go. Although this may sound like a rather strange way of explaining my occupation. I'm a professional tinkerer. Actually a retired one, but I do tinker around all day long, and on many projects.

    From age eight I raced motocross. And did till my early twenties. But I had to quit, due to an accident. However Husqvarna took note of me, and I went to work for them. This is where I picked up most of my knowledge about motorcycles and 2- strokes. Lets see, I ended up owning my own auto body shop for 17 years.We specialized in custom work. I was very fortunate that I was able to spend most my time tinkering around with various projects...I ramble on , sorry. too put it short, I was the kid who tore apart everything my parents had, to see how it worked. That , more or less sums it up in a nut shell.

    I have learned many interesting things on this forum. And I hope that in return, I can share some of my ideas. I have always been fascinated by engines/motors And look forward to sharing this enthusiasm with all...Thanks for reading

    Welcome to MBc Vince!

    It's always great to see someone come in with prior gearhead experience. Looking forward to seeing you in the forum!

    Thanks for the welcome. I have to tell you,being called a gearhead is much better then what my neighbors and sons call me. Although in a good way, a nut.

    Hello, Vince.

    I didn't think you were rambling at all. Seemed like a good intro post.

    So now you need to build some bikes and tell us about them.

    Have fun.

    hey, bluegoatwoods thanks for your message. I actually do have some bikes already built, and many engines, I seem to experiment with them more then riding. Also in the past year I have designed and made some custom hp parts . As soon as I can get my act together here, I will start to post them all, I hope I will be able to give back to this forum as much as I have been taught about this great sport!
