    Hello all. I'm new to this MB thing so, please bare with me.
    What brought me to thinking about a MB was I want a fun
    commuter/pub crawl bike. I've been a cyclist all my life and
    even rode/raced motorcycles thru my 20's and 30's. I'm
    liking the SkyHawk Frame for a base. Are there any other
    frames made like that i.e. built in tank and mount.

    Here are important questions to consider when building or buying for yourself or others:

    1) What is the predominant riding terrain?
    2) What type of physique does the primary rider have?
    3) What will the rider's local laws allow and require them to have?
    (Lookup and personally read these laws.)
    4) What kind of bike is being motorized?
    5) What is the bike to be used for?
    6) How much of a budget is to be used for the build or buy?

    Seek the answers to these questions in order to get the most out of the bike you're building or buying. We're here to help with any questions you may have. Good luck with your build or buy.

    Welcome to the forum. Lawmen have been tolerant of us in the SpaceTown area. A four stroke may be better for daily commuting, since you don't need to mix gas and oil. Four stroke kits cost more, though.
