    YO!!! If you are in Texas, especially Austin, I want to get together and ride.

    I live in Austin and ride the Happytime 70cc on a mountain bike frame. Native Austinite and motorcyclist, so I know some pretty sweet rides in the city. Plus we can do critical mass and hot rod shows and stuff. Trade ideas share tools, exchange parts, mods, etc...

    Would like to make a regular Motorbike "Gang" where we meet up once a week, twice a month or once a month at least. I am open to enjoying this group with all types of small motors including Mopeds and electric scooters/bikes within the same power range (max 40mph). I have a sense of humor about this, so the idea of a Motley Mob of Motorists definitely appeals to me.

    I will take resposibility for organizing meet-ups, planning rides and special events. All you have to do is show up and have fun. And bring your own beer money.

    If interested message me with your best contact email (one you actually check daily). I will never message you with non-ride related email, nor forward your address to anyone else.

    Now I have a reason to go visit my grandmother in Austin. I suppose that's not nice to say. Too bad you're not closer to Fort Worth or vice versa. I hope you make some good friends like I have up here.

    I love Austin. In fact, last week on my business trip I saw a motorized bike behind Botticelli's on South Congress. Was that yours Rebel? It looked like a daily rider. Keep us posted on any get togethers or rides. Maybe Scottm and I can work out a plan to go down there sometime.

    behind Botticelli's

    Thats mine thanks, hope you liked it. I assume you mean the black white and red job locked behind the Continental club. Or was it that really nicely restored all black Whizzer one of our customers rides. Either way there are more great MBc's in Austin every month. Ride on!!!

    My Bike

    This is my bike before and current-still a work in progress.

    I salvaged a banana seat skeleton from Yellowbike with a nice wide seatpan that I am going to upholster myself for comforts sake, toss a backrest on and it's chill ride time!

    You Austin peeps should go to Willits shop @ 2401 Thornton Rd. and look in on the Chopper From ****, the only bicycle ever featured in Easy Rider Magazine. Say Hey to Wes from Bigwheel!

    I'll be interested in participating as soon as I can figure out the logistics of motorizing my Spitfire.

    Glad to know there's some peeps around. :D

    Here We Go !!!

    Thanks to Blacktop and Triple T, hope your kits come soon, and to the other Austin area riders with temporarily broken wheels. Looks like it's just two of us for this one! Oh well I'm stoked that this ride is happening at all. Hope to hear from more of you next time, good luck with your repairs all.

    I just got a yellow whizzer 24inch and have been cruising all over town( the otherday I went from downtown to stassney and congress) Ive been talking to some guy who works at music makers(next to the bicycle sportshop) he also has a whizzer. Other than that I dont know.,

    When I was waiting on my whizzer to come in I think I saw you on westgate riding northbound and was thinking man I wish I had mine already.
