Well i figured i'd do an intro too seeing i got to read so many other's..

My name is Tony.
I've had a interest in bike's since i was a young'n..i'm 31 now.
Started with minibike's around age 5, then graduated to dirtbike's and finally a couple street bike's..
The only 'special' bike (at least to me) i had was my last one.
It was a '77 sporty 1000.
Within a month of owning it i blew it all apart and started playing..
I painted it HOK candy wineberry, added drag bars and shorty pipe's..ign, carb etc..the typical stuff.

Back when i had it, i was still learning the mechanicals of 'em...unfortunatly i ended up selling it to help fund my hot rod addiction..
That was close to 10 years ago.

I'm not on here to talk about what i had though.
I'm very interested in building another bike sometime soon, this time from the ground up.
And i'm really hoping to learn from you guy's.

I might know how to tear one apart and rebuild it, but there's so much more to it than just that. Stuff that i either havn't gotten involved in, or just don't know...but hope to pick up.

Well, thats my boring intro..
Looking forward to reading, learning, and eventually building my own.

It's good to see the Pack Rats (and PA chapter) represented here... I'm hoping to learn a thing or two here myself. Right now I'm cobbing together a litlle cafe racer out of an 81 KZ750 and a bunch of ebay parts...I'll keep you posted.

Wish I would have got to meet you at the Showdown. What kind of bike do you want to rebuild?
Yeah there were soo many HAMBer's there..i missed out on meeting a lot of you guy's..
Hopefully next year..

What i want to build is though..
My uncle and two cousin's are hardcore into triumphs, and i love 'em myself..
I rode my one cousin's bike..plunger frame, 650 with 750 kit, circle track cam's, T-T pipes, twin carbs etc..this little shit was quick as hell!
A lot quicker than my sportster.
But, i had a sporty and because of that bike i'm leaning towards another Harley.

The direction i think i'm going to head right now is an ealry Harley hardtail.
I'd like to do a pan, but when it come's time to get busy i'll use what i can get my hands on.
Something along the line's of the Flyrite scoot's. I LOVE the way those bike's look.
Just simple, bare bone's and bad ass..

Realisticly, i'd be happy with either a triumph or harley....cause right now i have nothing..haha
And the're both very cool bike's.
