    Hi, I'm Wayne Evans from Longmont Co. I'm mostly from Houston for the last 35 years and we'll be living back there soon, a year or so, I guess. I don't have a motored bike yet but my neighborhood in Houston is a historic neighborhood near downtown, The Houston Heights. It would be a great place for a vintage type motorbike something like a board track racer. That's what I want to build soon. I have a restored 79 Vespa P200 now. I'm also building a replica Lotus Seven spors car called a Locost.(from scratch) I hope to finish that project this summer and maybe start a bike build. We'll see. I'm a furniture maker by trade, I'm 60 years old. I used to do a lot of bike riding but my knees won't take much of that anymore.:cool:
    Later, Wayne

    Welcome aboard.

    I'm closing in on 50. And while I can still pedal a bike about as strong as ever, I can feel the strain. It's undeniably worse than it was 20 yrs ago.

    But put an engine on it and it's a whole different story. You'll love it. In fact, you shouldn't dawdle; doing without one of these is truly a life of deprivation.

    One of the signature lines here says "It's like riding downhill all the time".
    And that says it very well. That's just what it's like.

    Thanks, sounds interesting.( I like the line about pedaling down hill all the time.) but in the meantime I do still have the Vespa and, maybe by this summer I will have my Lotus Seven finished. You can check those out on my web
