You are gust of fresh air on this Forum! I doubt anyone in the 11,000 members of the AMCA would not tell you that in the earliest years of their entering the sport, we all started out with whatever parts we could afford and built our own motorcycle from there. I suggest you Google "Hand Built Show, and also Revival Cycles", both of Austin TX. Last year in it's second year over 20,000+ people your age attended this show. On display were 75+ "hand built" motorcycles built by younger 20/30-something aged enthusiasts. Every imaginable power plant, front end, frame, and format imaginable was on display. Might help you get inspired? Get back on this Forum whenever you need assistance. There is a wealth of knowledge, experience and we older enthusiasts do know where the piles of parts are. I also encourage you to contact The Confederate Chapter of the AMCA in TN. For probably $15 0r $20 you can join their Chapter and meet many members near you who will help your cause. The Cherokee Chapter of the AMCA here in TX/OK have a large number of 20/30-something aged members that we constantly help get into the sport.
