Default hello from downunder

hi all,

As you can sort of guess i'm from Australia. I am going to build a mini bike for a school project and am planning on fabricating the frame myself (with assistance) along with having a jackshaft on it.

As this is my first bike there will be plenty of questions as to how stuff works, along with many pictures of the bike going together.

cheers Matt
