    In the interest to save some $$ on gas I just bought a used Huffy 15 Speed and a 80 CC(?) kit. Hoping to get the transformation complete soon to start riding it to work (5 Mi. one way) when weather permits. Should be able to save about 2.5 Gal of gas a week if it works out.

    FWIW...I'm a fabricator/welder, sell racing parts for circle track cars, and have been around cars, motorcycles, boats etc. most of my life, which is a long time :)
