    I just wanted to say thinks for the info. I just built my first Home Built chopper. It was a Kikker5150 Hardknock form

    the articles gave me a good heads up for things to look for as i was putting it together.

    As a side note, i just want to say that building a Bike, or at least putting one togethor is an awesome experience. for anyone who is even a little bit of a gear head, the Hardknock Bobber was a great first bike for me to work on.

    If your looking to get started in home building bikes, Take a look and take a look.

    You can get lead substitute (also known as octane booster) on most gas stations.
