    I've been lurking for a few days now and obviously my interest has been sparked.
    I'll thank everybody in advance for sharing their experiences.

    I am in the process. A long time friend directed me to this site and he has built I believe 4 bikes. I'm quite familiar with the engines being utilized (except the Chinese 2 cycle) and the technology in general as I have dedicated my daylight hours to managing the equipment required to maintain a local golf course.
    As a former avid bicyclist (and advocate) I thought a motorized version would be a worthy consideration. All options are on the table although I am particularly interested in just where the technology for an electric ride is positioned today and where it will be in the near future.
    To be driving down a road in complete silence on a bike again... OK, maybe the first one just might be a 2 cycle...

    hi Bill -- yes - maintaining the old golf course

    I retired from the City of San Diego
    they used to lend me out to the Torry Pines Golf Course once a year
    the big Andy Williams thing

    also - besides being an equipment operator
    spent some time in the small engine repair shop
    sounds like you know what I mean

    I miss the old shop -- the tools were impressive

    can't help but love these little one banger MB engines

    let us know when you are ready to -- ride that MB thing
