I LOVE street trackers and reallly any old, clean bike. It's all out there to be seen.

Unfortunantly I have found I don't have the patience for all the fab. If it's straight up
dissasymble, clean, refinish, reassymble I'm good but when it takes all day to figure out how you want to make a part that when your done takes 5 minutes to install...
no thanks...

You don't need patience to build these, look at it as a drinking opportunity........

Now I'm considering a street tracker, hummmm.

No. I can honestly say I tried.

It was killing me to work all day just to get a small part just right.

I gave and the guy who bought it was riding it a week later.

It was seriously fun to build, modified EVERYTHING except the transmission, and onto a guy making a 6 speed for it now....... Just as I got it ready to ride, the company transfers me to China. Back on the work bench for another 3 - 4 years.......

BTW, Patrick handled the tricky motor work, I managed the rest.
