    These are a couple of the motorized bikes I put together this summer. I think I'll have to break down pretty soon and put them away for the winter. I'm hoping for a few more days around 30 degrees so I can get a little more riding time in.

    I have the same speedo as your first one! I also like the tank over the rear wheel.

    Do you like the chain drive or the belt drive engine better?

    I enjoy riding them both but for longer trips I prefer the GEBE belt drive. There's just fewer things that can go wrong.

    Butch,

    A question for you....where did you get the kick stands, and will they fit on an old time frame with two small tubes?

    I was more comfortable with the narrower bars so I cut 2 inches off of each end. It also made it easier getting the bike through the door of my work shop.

    Winter Projects

    These are a couple of fun projects I put together over the winter. I still need to put some paint on the recumbent when the weather warms up a little more. Snow was gone off the roads today so I took them both out for a ride for the first time. Put about 20 miles on each bike with no problems.
