    Hin from Sarastta,
    I'm speedball1. Some of you may know me fromb AskMe.com, All Experts.com or where I'm at now AskMeHelpDesk.com where I'm The Senior Plumbing Expert. Evert. At 85 I still get a paycheck from Google. My eyesight's failing so I turned in my car tag and bought ab beach cruser bicycle and installed a 66cc two stroke engine on it. 40 years ago I was a outlaw biker up in Tampa. I built and sold choppers. I started to trick out the bike and ended up woth a chopper. The only things left stock on the bike is the frame,pedels and the rear wheel. I beefed up the front end with a steel/chrome rim, purchased a Harly type leather wide saddle and sunk it as low in the frame as I could. I then swapped the handlebars for a 14" high raise 'ape hanger" and I have a 4 liter gas tank to replace the 2liter one that came with the motor.
    I ride 8 to 10 miles everyb day and if I can't drive a car or a motor cycle I'm having the most fun I ever had with my pants on. I'm busy on the net but will find time to tnteract wityh my fellow riders. Thanks for having me. speedball1

    Thanks for the welcome guys. I had no idea that so many people were riding motor bikes. So far I seem to be the only one in my area. Do MBs have rallies like Sturges has for motorcycles? It's so good to hear from fellow riders. Regards, Speedball1
