    I looked at all your pictures, that is some pretty good messing around. I like the gas tanks you made, they look very good.

    Wish I had your skill, I have never risen above the tinker level but I enjoy the hobby and started tinkering with these motorized bicycles in 1978. My first one was called a Bumble Bee. A real pain to start and keep running and it seemed just about everything broke at one time or another. But when I pulled it out of the back of my airplane ane it kept running I had a great time. Made it into an on and off hobby over the years.

    You said you have sold several, are you still messing with motorized bicycles or have you stopped.

    Nice metal work on those tanks, nice tight compact builds.
    Ever think of doing a more modern looking bike?
    You should.

    thinking now I'll have to hunt up an old cruiser.

    They're definitely more motorcycle than bike, but absolutely
    inspirational! Know where I can find a cheap tig welder?

    My problem is to many motorcycles to work on.

    the winters come fast.

    I feel ya Kansas... I've got so many customer orders this time of year i dont have time for my own rides...
    Between the bike shop and my night job its a miracle i get time to ride.
    BUT the drive to tinker is what this hobby is all about...
    Get to wrenching.
    Its good for you.
