    Been lurking around the forum for a week or so now. Just ordered my first build yesterday, got a Schwinn Cruiser from Walmart (Steel frame, all the cool cruiser stuff!) and the 66cc stage 1 performance kit from Bikeberry. I'm pretty excited to get it all together, as one of my coworkers knows 2 strokes like the back of his hand. Offered to port it for me and some other nifty stuff that'll hopefully keep it running a while! I literally don't know much of anything about motors so I figured I could learn. Thanks everyone for all the really informative threads! Hope I didn't pick the wrong stuff to make my build............I suppose I'll post about it when it's all done. Thanks guys!

    Hello Trey:
    I'm new to the forum myself and I am motorizing a Western Flyer (looks like the bike on a bottle of Fat Tire Amber Ale and has the same color scheme). Do you have any legal concerns regarding classifying your bike as a moped, bicycle, or motorcycle? I registered my bike as a bicycle and consider it a non-motor vehicle, after reading MD statutes. What is your take on an MB in MD?

    Here are important questions to consider when building or buying for yourself or others:

    1) What is the predominant riding terrain? (Level ground, hills, asphalt or dirt etc...)

    2) What type of physique does the primary rider have? (Large, small, short, tall or health issues etc...)

    3) What will the rider's local laws allow and require them to have? (Lookup and personally read these laws.)

    4) What kind of bike is being motorized? (Mountain, road, whizzer or recumbent etc...)

    5) What is the bike to be used for? (Shows, long trips, around town, off road or racing etc...)

    6) How much of a budget is to be used for the build or buy? (All at the start or as you can afford projects etc...)

    Seek the answers to these questions in order to get the most out of the bike you're building or buying. We're here to help with any questions you may have. The purpose of the questions to consider is not to overwhelm or confuse you. Rather help you focus in on what will work best for you and help you develop a building or buying philosophy. This site has lots of people who can help you but the only way they can is by asking questions. Any one of the questions to consider somebody here can help you with.

    A fool never learns from their mistakes.

    A smart person learns from their mistakes.

    A wise person learns from the mistakes of others.

    Good luck with your build or buy.
