    This time I broke all the spokes, i'm not sure how, the my weel bent and I couldn't ride it again. I took It to a bike shop and for $31 I got my spokes fixed. The guy said that bikes just aren't ment to have motors, but I think it was just the fact that I bought my bike at a flea market. So far Ive spent $315 on it, but it was well worth it.
     

  2. :roll: please... bikes not meant to have motors? that's the first time I've heard that...

    That is a really sad sad thing to say. :cry:
     
  4. He said that because the shop only sells bikes without motors.

    ive heard that alot, one shop refused to work on one of my bikes because it had a motor and all i needed was to get my coaster break tightened.
     

  6. what was their reasoning? the fuel would drip on their nice floors or something?

    broken spokes

    Definitely go with 12 gauge spokes if you don't already have them. I replaced my 14 gauge spokes with 12 gauge spokes, and they are rock-solid.
