    hey guys, I've been reading all your threads for a long time now to see if i want to start my first project. I'm really interested but am a little hesitant because I dont have that much knowledge about engines or anything. How was it for you guys when you built your first kit?

    Welcome aboard.

    You don't have to be a rocket scientist to do this. If you are able to keep a pedal bike in good working order, then you're almost there. After that you just need to be willing to tinker and do some not-so-difficult troubleshooting.

    If you have working hands and eyes and just a little bit of willingness, then you'll do fine.

    Good luck and have fun.

    Hey, bgw, watch it!

    "working hands and eyes" my left (numb) foot!

    I have one hand, with 1.5 working fingers and a thumb. I have two eyes, but the right one has a plastic lens (installed in March) which I'm still getting used to.

    I am in the midst of my first build, which is a trike conversion of a 24" ladies huffy, with the engine going in the rear triangle, with a Shimano 3-speed mid-drive on the pedal side.

    "Working hands and eyes" - HAH!
