    Hello all,
    i am Sphynx, i have been riding bikes for a long time now and i have recently made the addition of an 80cc motor to a bike i have had around the house. i have even made a trip from Orlando Fl, to N.E. Atlanta Ga. 11 days with 2 layover and another person making the trip with me. Probably one of the wildest experiences i have ever taken on. Now i have teh motor on the other bike and the original is retired, soon to have her own place on the wall. 5000+ miles on a bicycly i built from the frame up and not once in over 5000 miles had to change a tire or tube.

    i really wanted to add the motor to that bike but the one i purchased will not mount as the frame is a dual suspension frame, center shock spring and all. so i had to lay her down and true up a new one to accommodate the motor. So far i have 175 miles or so on this bike and although i have had a few minor issues, all in all i think it is a great idea and everyone should have one.

    Nice to meet you all and looking forward to sharing any thoughts and pickin some noggins.

    welcome aboard, Spinx.

    You got a couple of fine looking bikes there. The Giant was just made for an engine.

    Welcome Sphynx. The dual suspension bike would work well with a rear wheel or rack mounted engine.
    If you already bought a frame engine for it, you are better off getting a different bike to install it on, unless you are experienced in "Chop, cut and rebuild".
