Old school 20

I'm a long time pedeler looking to increase my range and speed, plus with gas as high as it is i'll probably try to commute some too. Ive been riding on and off (mostly on) for 33 years. There were a only a couple summers when i didn't have a bike, and yes I'm a fair weather rider. I do not currently have a motor on any of my bikes. I have a GT I usually ride, an old old mongoose that I custom fit a three speed Internal hub on for offroading and a newer mongoose that I'm currently outfiting for skate park riding. I found this forum after seeing some cool You tube videos showing various motorized bikes and deciding I wanted to build one. Some times learning things "the hard way" can be over rated so i'd like to lurk n learn, but if i get too stuck or have some revelation too good to keep to my self i'll post it.

Thanks for what looks to be a great forum

Hi Jason. I'm pretty new here. My first build is just over a week old and I started my second build yesterday. So I'm not an authority, but I can give this forum my recommendation. It's friendly and a terrific source of very valuable information. While waiting on my engines to arrive I read a lot of these posts and learned a lot that helped me to get familiar with what I would be working with before I ever got my hands on it.

and motor biking is fun. You'll enjoy it.
