    Hey guys
    Just wanted to introduce myself. I recently installed a Chinese 80 cc engine on a Worksman bike. Also added the front drum brake wheel from a Worksman trike. Needless to say it's a heavy duty rig and should take many years of use and abuse. Anyway, I look fwd to riding and reading.

    Welcome to MBc! That was a very good move, fitting the front drum brake to the bike. When it comes to riding MBs, safety is paramount. It didn't take me long to realize I needed a front brake on my first build. I lost the nut and bolt off my coaster brake arm while going 20mph down a slight grade. I was just glad I was able to get it stopped.
