    Iv'e been a bit bored at home so I thought I would start seeing what stuff I can find do build another bike on a budget ,so it's going to be a bit of a Jalopy

    As you all know I love Ridged Bikes so Iv'e got another Kraft Tech Frame , Scored a 80 Cub EVO Engine and 5 speed at the right price to get me started and a pair of Sportster Wheels for FREE, Shinko do a new 19" Front Vintage Tyre and Iv'e been hanging to use one on something so this is it

    Iv'e got plenty of crazy idears along the way to try out.,

    when you use paint stripper to help it along wrap the motor in plastic like a shipping plastic restricting the air that gets to the stripper helps it do its job faster and better, hope that helps

    wtching this one with interest
