Does anyone know where a good online store is to buy good snowbikes? or just snow bike conversion kits

i hope you have 400 dollars your willing to drop on it

im constructing one myself actually thats coming along quite nicely, i'll post pics when its complete im using two full size skateboard decks, the back is held in place by skateboard trucks in the dopouts and hooks attached to the spindle. THe front will be a block of wood connected to the skateboard deck and a nother block of wood nailed on top of that, in between the two blocks of wood i will be putting an axle for it to go into the fork dropouts and bunji (sp?) chord so it can pivot up and down but will go back into place

Doing a nice looking weld while having good penetration and stuff is.

You could just bird**** it and have it hold.

To do anything well generally takes patience and practice. When I was your age, I was teaching the other kids in my shop class how to weld.
