    I'm from northern Virginia, we might as well be our own state. What do you ride, and have you had any run-ins with any LEOs?

    My old ride was this:

    I rode this thing around for a while and never had any issues.
    I had alot of "OH COOL" looks, but never had any issues from the LEO's. I did my best to ride it on the back streets instead of the main streets though.


    I am going to slap a 49cc sticker on the side of my engine on my current project :D:

    That's sick but we can't be the only VA MBer's I've heard that there is another guy in my area with a fleet of MBs that builds and sells them we should organise a VA ride on the capitol (richmond) for me that's about a 2-2.5 drive so prolly 4-5ish via MB on Rt. 1.

    Yeah, that sounds good!

    My bike has been done for about 3 weeks now....i could probably make Richmond in 2.5 hours on my MB via Rt. 60.

    I am finifhing the tune om my exp chamber tonight and installing a sidepull front brake, I have a boost bottle and a slant head in the mail. I'd like to wait for nuvinci but I could probably be convinced to do it on a 1 speed.

    i have a Nexus 7 speed rear...and i think its perfect. a 3 speed is minimum.

    I put the tuned black pipe on my bike from SBP and noticed a nice nice increase in umph.

    uh, by 70mph, im sure you mean 40mph right?

    my bike will do around 40...though i havent GPS'ed it yet.

    nah i mean 70mph i broke 40 a couple times downhill on a completely stock motor, after the head comes in it should have the torque to run a 27 tooth sprocket nicely. that should put me at about 44mph currently. possibly some 5052 fairings with build in windshield and a rear as well as cast wheels, i don't think 70 is unreasonable on a bicycle. :p

    Virgina Beach here guys! Just built my first MB a week ago (wife thinks it's ridiculous). Brand new Schwinn Del Mar from Wally World. A whopping $114.00. Ordered a 66cc Black Stallion kit from GasBike and they sent me a GruuBee SkyHawk GT-5 instead. No complaints here.
    Picking up a #41 chain from Northern Tool today. Original one broke on me Wednesday night at the master link. Sent my 300 lb A$$ over the bars. OUCH!!!

    Got the new chain. Tensioner issues now. Mounting roller onto a 1/4 " thick piece of aluminum to go from frame to frame. I'll be back on the road one day!! LOL

    Yo guys! I live in ghent and ride often. I have about 6 guys out here that ride with me. I commute weekly on mine. We've got a site with some cool parts and VA info. If you ever have questions drop me a line. I've built quite a few of these bikes and in different forms. I'd be down for a ride sometime soon. Lets organize it. email me.
