    I'm Daniel. I live in Winnipeg, Canada. I bought a powerkingshop 80cc black "stealth" (steath? TEEHEE! I guess if you are deaf maybe) 2 stroke engine kit a couple of weeks ago (EBAY)and installed it today. I chose to install it on an old mountain bike as my first project of this sort.

    I took my first ride today and despite the engine not running smoothly I had a blast! I'm totally stoked.:shock:

    I decided to try this approach to savE fuel for my commute to work. I spend about $100 week on gas. Not to mention $5/day for parking. And thats just for work, never mind all the other running around I do. (SUV)

    I work shift work, so the idea of riding my bicycle home after a 12 hour night shift makes me ache just thinking about it. I tried it a few times and it was just too much for my old tired bones. So this is my other option.

    I look forward to perusing this forum for ideas and hope to learn a lot from it.
