Default ahh, a new world for me!

Hey everyone. I'm glad to see a forum like this. Especially for beginners like me. I'm sure I'll find lots of use full info and tips/advice from everyone here. I've always wanted my own small engine powered toy(s) since about 10yrs ago when I was in high school. I've been working on cars since I'm 16(now 25) and have always been a technical person and loves building things. Especially when its motorized.

I'm a guy with weird and insane ideas/creativity when it comes to custom building. Friends think I'm crazy but me, I'm just expanding my ideas and I love doing what makes me feel who I am. I usually don't like to create/built things people usually are building. For my first small engine motorized project I'm trying to built a FRONT WHEEL DRIVE Bike with the motor i'm buying this weekend. Also, on the side I'm turning a cordless power drill into a motor unit to power my little brother's small bike. Have two new drills to tear apart if one is not enough power. I'm building on the cheapest side and work my way up if I need anything. So far the only two NEW drills only cost $30(from HF) and it comes complete with batt/charger. Loving it...

Hoping to learn more as I just start reading yesterday and have already learned a few interesting things.
