Hi all
I haven't been on here since I moved her from NJ a few years back. Glad to see its still active.
I have built a few hacks in my time with my "garage buddies" but I certainly am no expert. I have a very good condition 1994 Honda Magna 750 that I want to add something onto. The bike has a lot of juice and could pull a Mack truck  
That said, seeing how I'm in "weird" Portland, I'm thinking maybe building a frame (I can weld), and maybe build a unique tub or two just for fun. Maybe you guys can give me some advice on the frame and the best way to connect it. Here's a few shots of the bike:

Raised and schooled in Portland from '33 to '46, and it was weird then too!
