    Hi. I just joined this morning. I have been building non-powered bikes for about a year and am a regular on the atomic zombie site (trikeman is my nick there). I am interested in building a motorized bicycle now. This looks like a good forum.

    Welcome Trikeman. I'm an Atlanta native too. Just moved here to Florida. You seem to like working with bikes. You'll love motorizing.

    Just do it.

    Thanks. I picked up this donor bike cheap a few days ago. I am thinking of putting an electric motor on it, instead of a gasser, since the state of Georgia allows electric assist bikes to go unlicensed, uninsured etc, but even gassers under 49cc are classed as mopeds.

    I have an old 24 Black and Decker electric mower motor (1200W) and batteries that seem to work, if I can get them attached. I am thinking of getting a GEBE pulley and belt for it. I also need to pick up a controller.
