    I came here from, great bunch of down home guys - got enough tractors (don't have a green one though).
    Now I, need to convert a few bikes to power. This is another slippery slope. You can't have just one.

    Ohh man I hear you... I have a 2005 civic si that in total has more than the cost of a brand new 5 series BMW invested in it... and a 91 crx with more than I want to admit invested in it too. I cant imagine how many more thousands the labor would have cost if I hadnt done all the work myself.

    I know I will never see that money again but the memories I have building and racing those two cars is soooo worth every penny. Thats one reason why I like these bikes so much. The parts are cheap... I find that I spend hundreds of dollars instead of thousands.

    If you need any help or advice on the motoredbike feel free to PM me. I will be sure and help best I can.

    Since I wasn't a computer geek growing up I will try not to take offense to that...

    PM = private message.

    Move your mouse cursor over the bold letters of someones screen name and click it, a menu will pop up with the second option saying send a private message... or something like that. Click it and you can send a private e-mail style message to the person.
