I love to teach my son how to ride and repair stuffs the old fashion way. Here I will share some of our cheap DIY projects and repairs. I will also share some of my experience as a biker and as a pro mechanic. I am not a mechanic anymore but I still do repairs but mostly for my own machineries and this is why I try to keep everything easy and cheap. I also don't race anymore but I still love riding up the mountains where there is little or no help and all I can rely on is my small tool pouch and my monkey repair skills to bring me home whenever my bike or my friends bike breaks down.

If you are a tech-wiz or some kind of high-tech repair guru who likes spending too much $$$s buying stuffs and spends most of your time at a coffee shop posing your best biker battle gear clown costume and talking how great a biker you are then THIS IS NOT FOR YOU... Here we seriously ride our bikes and we try to keep everything simple, easy and cheap. Most of what I will share here are intended for riders who usually break their bikes to peices and may not be needed by other bikers.

I will also be sharing some cheap ways how I repaired my cars and computers. And for laughs, I will also add some weird / funny / odd stuffs that I or we did that worked and didn't work. Sorry about this blog's style, set-up or whatever you may call it, I'm an old school biker and its easier for me wrenching cars and bikes than typing on my keyboard...

bikers are chic magnets

bikers are chic magnets... hahaha!

Showing-off his ugly scoot. Notice the cool futuristic silver/chrome paint on the tires :)

This was my son's first scooter but not his first motorbike. He really wanted to ride one but scooters was too tall for him so I made him a scoot that he can ride. The donor bike is a Honda Tact 50cc. First I removed all the plastics then I remover the carburetor and inserted a small round metal plate with a hole half the size of the original hole to decrease it's power. I chopped a bicycle frame for it's seat and welded the seat post on the scooter so that the seat's height can be adjusted. Then I cut a piece of plywood to fit the step and my son painted the bike with silver/chrome can spray paint. This two photos was before he decided to paint the wheels... 

My mates named this scoot "Terminator" for it's sci-fi look and took turn on riding the bike. My son only rode this bike once (off-road) and had tons of fun but needed to get back on to something with off-road tires. He was 5 years old then but still keeps photos of his first funky scoot till now.
