    Thanx for the welcome houghmade and eltatertoto , I'm down here in the southern tip of Indiana [ Evansville ] I thought I would get both my boys [16 yrs old and 17 yrs old ] a kit and a new chopper bicycle for this Xmas and it would be sort of a father sons project to work on together thing . One of the boys has a schwinn chopper bicycle I got him a couple years ago but I thought that would come in handy for spare parts when needed . Are ya ready for the good ole Indiana humidity that will be sitting upon us before we know it ? :shock::shock: summer ya gotta love it. :grin::grin:

    guitar man- that sounds like a cool project, i would check with the local poliece before, though. cause although legal if over 15, they hate me when im on my s-ray with the ape hangers. im having some issues wth the local cops myself right now... oh and as for the weather, it was 45 yesterday:shock:

    welcome aboard, guitar man! We're glad you've become a member.

    Ask away with your questions.

    Now, the first place to get started is with the 'Read This First' post at the top of the 'Introduce Yourself' forum

    And, a good post to get grounded with motorized bikes is with sparky's crash course

    Finally, be sure to use the SEARCH functions here at the site. The odds are, your question, or a very similar one, has been asked before. If the simple (but basic) search function is returning too many results, refer to the advanced search thread.

    I've read the thread where you run into some problems with the law on your bike. I think I'll end up getting them the headlight / taillight / and blinkers just to make it look as legal as the law would expect it to look . May not be enough , but once I read the actual laws governing these bicycle/mopeds I will stand up and fight city hall if I know I'm / or my boys are in the right. Is it worth it in the long run ? Probably not , but with me it's just the principal of the matter.:cool:
