Glad to see a new forum up, I havn't seen any others since the Grubee forum went away last year. I have two motorized bikes.

I was riding my stretch cruiser at the Golden Aspen motorcycle rally in Ruidoso, NM two weeks ago and out of 40,000 people and 15,000 bikers I was the only one that got a picture in the newspaper and on the front page at that. A huge picture of me on my bike on the front page.

Me vs. $100,000 Harleys:

Hopefully this forum will take off cause I really have the motorized bike bug and could use some support.

I have plans for an old school lowrider in the works.

Welcome to the forum!

I totally agree with you about how this forum needs to take off. I don't think it will be that difficult as there aren't really any other motorized bicycle forums based in the US. I had been searching for a good forum for months, when I finally decided I would take on the task of making a forum.

That is amazing that you were the only one with your pic in the paper for that ride. It's makes sense as your bike is way cooler than everyone else's. I really like the way that stretch cruiser looks. Way better than my goofy mountain bikes.

I noticed you have a bunch of pics of your bikes, if you would like, I can post a gallery of all your photos, just send me all the pictures (or links to pictures) that you would like included. Also, when you finish your website, I can link to that too.

I wish I could get my picture on the front page of the paper!

I havn't finished my site http://mountainmotorbikes.com even though I'm a webdesign/developer and run many sites. I wished I could play with bikes full time and the bikes get enough attention I could sell quite a few. In fact I had a guy on our main street offer me a shop and street front space to sell the bikes on a very busy tourism street with year round foot traffic.

I havn't become convinced I could make money. If I had 4-5 thousand to put into it at one time I would give it a try. About the time I got ready to do it the 2 strokes were banned from import and I decided to back off until I found a long term supply of motors.

I'm two hours from Mexico and considered setting up a place to import there. Grady Howell at thatsdax seems to have an affordable supply of good motors but I'm sure his supply will run out out soon.


For now though I love the bikes and everyone else does too.

I'm really getting the bug to build one of these with a motor. Either a trike with trailer or just a 2 wheeler:

Complete with a stereo and hydraulics like a real lowrider. I once had a great stereo on a bicycle back in Boston it was a super cool portable stereo with boom bass.

I already know how to do the stereo. Its simple. An MP3 player, voltage inverter, battery, a little home theater speaker system with big bass, around a hundred bucks total for big sound.

Man I'd love to play with bikes all day!
