    Motocycle in a Box

    Volkswagen beetle engine based. Building a trike from scratch won't be cheap. Vdub is my trike of preference. One reason. Trike kits are many and cheap. Engines are many and cheap also. Just slap on a Springer front end and front brake kit and go. Once. A engineer here in Texas built a prototype front wheel drive v-8 trike out of a Chrysler v 10 motor and put on sell on ebay. I wanted that soooooooooooooooo bad. But was too broke to bid on it. It would have been local pickup for me.

    For the older people

    Screw it. I am getting younger. I fall down a lot more like a 2 year old. I take naps like a 2 year old. I change my mind like a 2 year old. My biochemistry is acting like a two year old when it comes to bodily activities. Ergo: I am getting younger. Not older.

    Ugly comes in many shapes, and sizes. \\ There are ugly dogs, cats, people, sci fi, politicians, you name it. This should be a easy subject to reply to.

    Motocycle in a Box

    Okey Dokey. In your shoes. I'd search craiglist. I'd be willing to travel far to get what I need. Like the Wizard of OZ. I can only suggest what I think you need. Not what you want. I traveled 250 miles round trip to aquire the above basket case I am posting about. You living Florida. Have access to a pethora of stuff you are gonna need. https://treasure.craigslist.org/mcy/d/honda-cb750-chopper-project/6567812613.html Nice thing about the above link. You have a son who can help out on this on assembly. I know my 2 boys. When they get excited about a project. They start working on it like it is going to be their gear. As far as training wheels goes. This is how I am going to set up my wifes sportster. I already have the sidecar and mounting hardware in the back of Cushman Truckster pickup. This is my general idea on how my wifes motorcycle is going to turn out . That project is for next winter. My wife quit riding after her cancer operation. The big scar on her belly makes it uncomfy for her to try and hold a motorcycle upright. But I can fix that. Right now. I am busy with this http://xlforum.net/forums/showthread.php?t=2067738 and this http://xlforum.net/forums/showthread.php?t=2003349 Good luck with your honda 750 project. But can I make a suggestion? https://tampa.craigslist.org/pnl/mcy/d/suzuki-s40/6529796043.html The above is Belt final drive. No lubing needed. Easy to change the belt in your garage with hand tools. Fast enough. Decent brakes. 1 650cc cylinder for easy maintenance. Single Carburetor. Not fuel injected Already put together, Light weight to hold up. Even a big man looks good on it. I went the 650 I posted originally about because I had one in the USMC back in the day. I already know about what that bike can do and how to maintain it. I've synced 4 carbs before and worked on multi-cylinder jap bikes. I would not recommend a multi cylinder unit to a virgin mechanic, But that is just me talking here. I own 2 650 single cylinder bikes. I can kill myself on em with the power they produce. If Harley is your bag. I looked at the odometer in the picture on this one. It only has 6,000 miles or so on it https://daytona.craigslist.org/mcd/d/2005-buell-blast/6553397937.html I used to roll on old motoguzzi also when I was in the Marine Corp. Just like this one. I learned they used vw bettle valves, pistons, and rings. Plus other beetle parts.

    Bought this for 100- bucks less Oh well. Looks like the listing was removed during my drive home. Anyways. Bought a hard tail yamaha XS 650 for 400 bucks. I have to fix it, then assemble it. When I'm done. It will look like this and be worth about 2500 to 3000 bucks. The weld on hard tail part of the frame costs about as much as I paid for the whole bike. It has some other bikes in front of it on the priority list though.
