well most of you guys might know me from the Hamb. i've never owned any bikes other than 2 vespas. i've ridden crotch rockets but that's about it. i've gotten a wild hair up my butt to try to build a bike on a very slow learning process. i've done cars and restored vespas but never to this extreme.


so what do you guys suggest for a first timer builder? i do a lot of customizing to cars so i'm not to far out of my realm. except instead of 4 wheels, i now will be on 2... haha


thanx

what's user friendly and not to expensive for a first timer? for example is building a triumph to difficult for a first build. i don't have any friends that have bikes or know anyone that i can get input from.

i'm just looking to build an old school bobber. i like Flyrite choppers but i wouldn't be able to afford it all at one time though.

Welcome Dante!!

Save yourself a lot of time, buy a runner... Work on it for a while try to understand it.. then tear it down and build it back the way you want...

good luck..

Welcome to the JJ.

I had a couple bike's about 10 years ago...but nothing since and i think the 'hair' got to me too...so i started building a 68 triumph..
