    Hi all,
    I posted in the Pictures section, but found I cannot load pictures until I have posted once, so.....I wanted to introduce myself. I live in West Point UT, and have been tinkering with bicycles for years. I recently restored my 1964 Sears Mainliner back to original from just a rusty frame found behind my Dad's house. I am a woodworker, and while buying a bunch of equipment from an estate, I found a 1953 Schwinn Hornet, missing the tank and top half of the "rocket ray" headlight. I thought I would restore it, then found the tanks to be veeeery expensive, not to mention the light.
    Then I happened upon the chinese motors on youtube while looking at other Schwinns. I ordered immediately and got it one week ago. Tonight should be the maiden voyage under power. I will post pictures in the pictures section.
    Thank you to all who have posted before, I cannot tell you how much this sight has helped in the one week build!

    nice intro, but your subject line said it all :lol: :lol:

    yup, wait one day after your 1st post to upload pics, sometimes less time is required.

    i'm happy to hear how the guys helped you without even knowing it...care to post a little something in "general discussion" about "how i used the MBc forum to build my bike" for the next new builder?
