    As suggested I am introducing myself.
    I'm a 50 something junk collector with an imagination
    I have been interested in powering a bicycle to commute to work.
    Just found a mostly complete Thruster City Cruiser (china) bike for $20.
    Then I realized that I posess a Stihl chainsaw that runs (broke from roadway contact).
    So here I am, gathering ideas.
    And Thanks to everyone who has taken the time to share their knowlege.

    Welcome to the site Harrison.
    Like the looks/style of the bike but will it be able to handle the engine.
    Sounds like a great project. Hope you have plans for some beefed up brakes.
    Lot of good information here. Best of luck.

    welcome HF,

    you anywhere near this area?

    years ago, (many years), I lived in Michigan. Near Detroit. My parents had vacation property in Canadian Lakes. Always remembered what a fine time it was during the summers... We'd head over to some sand dunes. (don't remember where that is now. been away from Michigan so long now).

    welcome to the site. I'm new as well, and am learning lots from the folks here. what a great site.
