    It's real priveledge to participate on this awesome web site. I'm 51 years old, and design and build sailing skiffs, and ever since I put a $20 sears craftsman free spirit 2 stroke friction drive set up on the front wheel of a free 24" tricycle I had a real hankering to do more stuff with bikes, trikes, and the likes. I bought a 26" "next" beach cruiser for $30 dollars after I talked a friend into putting a 66-80cc bicycle motor on his 27" fuji. 38 mph........Geeeeesh. He let me ride it a couple of times and now I'm hooked. So anyway, I'm saven up some cash to build my beach cruiser (6 speed). I plan to go with a 48cc grubee power plant coupled with SBP's HD jack shaft kit. thanx for letting me in. Great site, great photo gallery etc. Thanx again......Fun riden..........Late Best regards,

    Welcome on board cap'n, Sounds like your well on your way to some more riding fun. I envy you for your sailing skiff design and build. That has always been a fasination to me.(Building and sailing boats) I built a beautiful Selway design canoe 2 or three years ago and its been some of my fondest memories when I think of the building process I went through. Good luck on your motorized bike. Lets see a picture when you get it done. Tom
