Hi, board. Brand new here .. and relatively new to the idea of motorized bikes! I've teetered between getting a moped or a small motorcycle for a while now--but the idea of motorizing a bicycle sounds like a blast. And good practice/a learning experience when it comes to working with engines. My neighborhood is scooter/bike-friendly; most of the places I roll on are close .. And it's summer! What an exciting project. So glad I stumbled on this forum. I ordered my engine kit a couple of days ago .. and I've been desperately scouring the 'net for an info-well like this. I think imma' wait for my engine to arrive before getting the bike itelf; especially after reading all the horror stories of folks with motors that don't want to fit their bikes. Hm .. I guess I'll quit before I get too rambly. But expect to listen to dozens of questions from me in the near future!
