    The Motorized Bicycle Company of Houston, Texas ( has donated one of its Bike Bug (America's Favorite Bicycle Engine) front wheel drive bicycle engine to Reverend Johnny Moore of Schulenberg, Texas and honored him as Bike Bug Brother of the Year 2011. The Bike Bug engine is mounted on a Worksman Industrial Tricycle (model ADB-3CB) with a 2' X 6' bicycle wheel trailer. The Motorized Bicycle Company's engineering staff designed and built the accompanying trailer. Their calculations and tests show the Bike Bug 1.2 horsepower engine, industrial tricycle and bicycle wheeled trailer should support 300+ lb. payloads and travel at 20+/- miles per hour and achieve 150 miles per gallon.

    During the recent MS150 bicycle event (Houston to Austin 150 miles) - four Bike Bug equipped bicyclers learned about Rev. Moore constructing a church by collecting recyclable materials with a bicycle and wagon during their stop in Columbus, Texas. They learned Rev. Moore collected the materials and hauled them to his facility. At the Church of the Heart construction site, the Preacher and parishioners sort and stack the various items into an immaculate arrangement of various items. The local good citizens of Schulenberg shop at Rev. Moore's outdoor facility and buy the various items. The proceeds are set to fund the church construction.

    We have the award during the Grand Parade All Cowboy Rodeo. More information on the Festival ingcan be found at

    Hope you Bike Buggers can join us.

    Looks like fun. Maybe my motorbike can be the pace car for the tricycle race.
