Hi all.

I started out as a kid riding and working on bikes, then went to motorcycles
when I got older, and now I'm back on a bike but with a motor on it. :)
For my 50th birthday a couple years back my brother-in-law built and
gave me my first one. Still have it and it's running fine. Here's a picture
of it. http://img248.imageshack.us/my.php?image=briansbikevr2.jpg
It's a 2 stroke, 49cc, rear wheel friction drive.

I found this forum because I've been trying to put a little website together
for him and his motorized bikes and had been searching all over the web for
ideas and info in this area. This is the best site I found for sharing ideas and
info on motorized bikes and I'm going to send him the url so he can get
over here and check it out too.

Now I'm gonna go check out the rest of the forum.

Hi Brian. Welcome to MBc!
Many of us have gone backwards to bikes again.

If you search and are unable to find your answers, don't hesitate to post your question. Someone will steer you to a link, or reply to your question. Were here for each other! Enjoy! :D
You may have seen this, but here's a great MBc starter "link" to get you motoring.
