    Recent lurker but ready to take the project on. Looking at a kit from gasbike (Silver flying horse with cnc front mount???). Worked for 10 years in the Bicycle industry and have always been into mopeds, dirt bikes, RC cars, etc.
    In the last few years, I was bitten by the vintage Japanese car movement. Pretty excited to build up something cool after selling off all my mopeds. I like a retro cafe kind of feel. Hope to add some self made brass and aluminum accents as well a other patinad goodies. Will try to get a build thread going as soon as I get started.

    Greeting Graveltrapp,

    I'd recommend searching this forum as thoughts develop on that build. I've found it invaluable. I too prefer a retro feel. I'd be curious on what base youre exploring.

    Welcome to the forum. What time period of Japanese cars are you considering? 240z? Celica (the one that looked like a small Mustang)? Datsun 510? Supra?
