    I am abeagle and just stopping in to say Hi.
    I worked as an auto tech for 20 yrs and now I work with computers.
    I joined this forum after reading the threads for the last 2 days, I found this site after researching engine driven bicycles. I have restored old motorcycles and some old tractors. I am very adapt at using tools and shop equipment.
    I am hoping to add a 70cc frame mount to my old Gary Fisher.
    It is a project I am looking forward too. Anyways keep it fun.

    Thank you for the warm Welcome

    I would just like to say thank you for all the warm welcomes.
    I have spent the last week reading threads and gathering some very useful data.
    I have decided to not build on the old Gary Fisher, but instead bought a new Schwinn Skyliner to start my build with. Since it's been a few yrs since I pedaled to communite, I am taking some time to get comfortable on the road again before adding the engine. I have been busy tuning the new bike , from brakes, seat postion, bar postion, adding good lights, and a rear rack to carry my lunch. :)

    I like my Skyliner. You'll find that you must fabricate a front mount of some kind for a Happy Time motor. I've tried a couple of different ways with varying success. I hope that you will continue to post your ideas and progress.

    Those Skyliners do make pretty rides. I'm assuming that you decided on the Skyliner after reading the threads about some of them. If so, Good on ya, you'll probably find that the build will go smoothly. A lot of people get pretty frustrated when they find that the engine that "looked good" to them will not easily fit the bike they want to put it on. And if the build is frustrating, the maintenance required by the Chinese Happy Time engines can be the straw that broke the camels back.
