The holiday hangout will go online tomorrow! If there's anything in the regular subforums that you're going to want to access over the holidays, copy it now while it's still accessible.
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So, I just got a new job as a fitter/fabricator for an ornamental metals company. I have access to a very large and comprehensive shop, and have been throwing around the idea of getting a motorcycle. I'd like to get a cheap, older motorcycle and turn it into a rat/art bike. Mostly, just something for me to work on during my free time.
I'm good with metal, welding, fabricating etc, but I don't know jack about engine mechanics. I can change oil, plugs, tires, brakes, etc, but besides that I'm lost. Is there any decent site, or reference book out there about motorcycle mechanics?
Before anyone asks, I don't have a license yet, but this project probably wont be for another 3-6 months. I plan on taking an MSF course before getting into it.
