Built to Order bikes are done on a 1st come 1st severed basis. Feel free to give us a call with an inquiries. Thanks For Your Interest Please read the ENTIRE following description/ listing before asking question or purchasing !!!!Tho we love all the enthusiasm about our builds many of the question we get can be answered by simply reading all the provided information below. If after you still have questions or concerns. Please do not hesitate to ask. we are happy to help. Up for sale is our latest replica build. This bike is built to resemble a 1910 Flying Merkel. As with all of our builds this bike was "test" ridden around town (weather permitting) a few times in the past week to ensure that she runs and rides Perfectly ! The "barn find" finish give this bike that great nostalgic feeling one would expect from the bikes of that era. Any nicks. scratches. flaws in paint. "rusty" parts. and distressed logos are all purposely done to give this bike an antique look and feel. These bikes are crafted with NEW parts that are only finished to look old and worn. Each bike is a one off build !Building this model. I wanted to produce a more traditional style replica. instead of the "Board track racer style" I've been building of late. A while back I was bending the ear of a few of my elders that have done it all. and still have the grit under their nails to prove it). and it struck me. The Board track style replica is not for everyone. Tho I love the feel of that style personally. others may find it less practical for riding around than the more traditional stance of these iconic bikes. If I do say so my self. I feel the goal was met. but you be the judge. From the Hand made frame. tank. and motor plates. to the rustic paint of the barn find finish. right down to the spring seat. and leather mud flaps. NO detail has been over looked. EVERYTHING on our "Barn find" bikes. is painstakingly finished for that antique look and feel. And I mean Everything. right down to the smallest nut. bolt. and screw. If only everyone could come by the shop to view and feel these bikes in person. Kick your leg over one of these bikes and your taken back to those. Simpler times !!! So few originals were produced back then. Only a small number of them survive to this day. and only a very small percentage of those ever come on the market. Not to mention that when they do. the rareness has rightly so. driven prices so high that not many can afford them. But here's a chance at the next best thing to that 100+ yr old original. The nuts and bolts. With fantastic MPG's from the 80cc 2 stroke motor. the joy of riding to the corner store or all the way across town is up to you. The extremely simplistic motor is virtually maintenance free. only needing a chain tension adjustment from time to time. Which is simply done with common hand tools. The great thing about this Moped style set up is that when you don't want to use the motor. bike functions just like an ordinary bicycle. and can go anywhere you wish to peddle it. When using the motor bike can reach speeds up to around 35mph. and with around 80 MPG the fun seemingly goes on forever. Don't let the mixing of gas with 2 stroke oil deter you. there is a very convenient alternative. Premixed 2 stroke fuels are readily available and sold at most hardware stores. We have found that the brands. TruFuel and VP. are the most common. The best thing about these type of fuels is they are ethanol free. which really helps these motors run great at a 40-1 mixture. Another commonly over looked benefit to 2 stroke motors is the fact that they do not use or require motor oil and the use of an oil tank. (tho you may see nonfunctional oil tanks on some of our models only to replicate those on the original bikes) This means these bikes will never need an oil change and can never develop a messy dipping oil leak. Perfect for those that plan to not only enjoy riding them but to also display them. This set up is truly as maintenance free as it gets ! We HIGHLY suggest draining all fuel from the bike before displaying them in a home. office or place of business !!!!!!!! We pride ourselves on building our bikes not only to be eye catchers but also to be completely functional. and usable day after day. You will find that all of our fuel tank are hand crafted for each individual build. Building each tank by hand not only gives each bike a functional fuel tank. but also allows us to more accurately replicate the style of tank for each individual motif. Depending on the style. each one of our tanks hold at least 1 US Gallon. giving the rider a riding range under motor power of around 80 miles per tank. So many people from different walks of life all seam to have a common draw to the timeless look and feel of these bikes. Many people like to ask questions and take a few photos. never a dull moment riding one of these around town !!! As much fun as they are to ride. they are just as fantastic as a functional art peace for an office. den. or as that attention grabbing conversation peace for your/his man cave. They are also fantastic for promotional events or as an eye grabber for a store front. Have had a few customers order builds to be used as "PIT" bikes on track days. and other customers have ordered a few for RVing around the country. Also great as a compliment piece to ride in the bed of you classic truck and the best part is. at the car shows pull out the bike and ride around to view and enjoy the other beautiful machines and people. But be prepared. these bikes tend to steal all the attention from your car/truck. nbsp;but what more fun and unique way can you think of to get around the pits. camp grounds and car shows. These fun one of a kind bikes can truly go anywhere and everywhere. and are sure to turn heads wherever they go. Shipping and Payment.
