    Hey guys and gals,
    I've been reading the forums for a few weeks now and I'm convinced it's time to turn my bike into a moped. Such a wealth of information here. Hope to chat and contribute soon!

    Type bike you are adding Power Assist' to? Preferred boost method; Petrol or electric

    Hello & Welcome in San Diego, Concur, but I joined on very 1st referral/visit! Hope you & all yours avoided all/any of the fire damage &/or mud slides
    Think you may have a good LOCAL points of contact, depending on desired assist methods! Can see & get real hands-on some of the methods!
    I am thinking of trying BL-36 fm Wilderness Electric myself, Would be WE system vs BionX PL350.

    Welcome to MB.c from another Cal-ee-phorn-ian!

    I'm up 'ere in El Lay riding a 2-stroked Schwinn Cruiser.

    As CC XT rider asked, what kind of bike do you want to motorize?

    See you 'round!

    Get a motor on you bicycle so you will have a motor assisted bicycle. Welcome to the tribe from the Giant Side of Texas!

    I'm looking at putting the 4-stroke Skyhawk II into either my 21 speed mountain bike, or donor 12 speed mountain bike. I think I'd prefer the donor because it's made of steel (makes welding easier, if neccesary). Originally I looked at electric (hub motors and chain drives) but decided that spending $800 was a bit much for me right now. However ~$400 for a nice commuter powered bicycle sounds good.

    Ah, I've just had a vocabulary lesson. Moped refer to scooters etc. I don't want one of those. I defenitely still want to pedal myself around...with a 4-stroke assist :grin:
