    Hi - I'm new to this, but have thought of building a motorized bike since I was a teenager (now I'm 51 so maybe it's about time!). I've been looking through posts to answer the many questions I have, but here's a basic one. I presently have 2 candidate bikes for motorization: my old Schwinn Typhoon that I got for my 9th birthday, and a 50's Humber 3-speed that I've been pedaling for 25 years. Would one or the other make a better candidate (from a strength/reliability standpoint) - or neither? Thanks!

    hey noisydad, welcome aboard
    quite a few folks have sued older bikes for their builds
    you've come to the right place to find your answers
    good luck and happy motoring
