    While I'm not brand-new to MB's or this forum, I hadn't posted anything in a long time - long enough that the system classified me as a Newbie. I built my MB in the spring of '09, spent that summer working out the "bugs", and then enjoyed a virtually trouble-free summer of 2010 cruising around for hundreds of miles.

    I built mine on an old bulletproof Chicago Schwinn bike, and if you can find one for cheap (mine was free) then I highly recommend it. Nothing on the bike itself has broken, or even looks like it's showing stress in any way. The engine is one of the low-cost "China Girl" units, and while they seem to get a lot of criticism I've had no real problems with it. A little carburetor fiddling along with the exhaust gasket failing is about all the trouble I've seen.

    So far I haven't met anyone else with a motorized bike here in Westminster, Colorado. Many folks are curious when they see mine, so I'm sure some will begin popping up sooner or later. Like I tell those who ask, getting old is mandatory but growing up is optional!

    Happy Cruisin/!
