Very few bike builders know engines. They know how to fab tanks/fenders and weld frames. Motors are bought in the crate and bolted in.What concerns me is the op's name is "SD CHOPPERS", which to me, sounds like the name of a shop.
I personally don't think I'd open a shop around building choppers before I learned how to build choppers... part of which is understanding different kinds of motors and builds.
