    Hello all I live in pacific beach Ca and i just built my first motorized bike. put it together in my second story apartment living room. Its a 48cc grubee skyhawk and ive put about 200mi on it so far. Still feels like I get more power every time i ride. I ride about 17mi round trip to work every day. Savin about 100 bucks a month on gas. only thing left to do is get an expansion chamber. Happy Times. good ridin everybody.

    Welcome to the forum!
    I'm a bit east of you, in the ElCajon valley.
    Be careful that the chain rubbing on your "greywall" tire does not wear through it.
    Nice bike BTW!

    The Cops around here will harass you if you don't wear a DOT helmet and have the Cali. MB plate. A few are impound happy, so be carefull.
    LaMesa has banned MB's all together, so steer clear of there.
    Years ago a friend if mine got away with it because he removed the engine's drive chain and his engine was cold to the touch by the time a LaMesa cop tagged him. Lights, sirens, yelling at him to pull over through the PA system, the whole enchalada. The cop gave him a stern lecture and a warning but had to let him go because my friend's bike was inoperable as an MB.
    The popo are getting keen about the laws around here.
