    Hi All,

    I'm Chuck, I'm from Tampa Florida, and I'm in the process of putting together a motorized bike. Yes it's from a kit. Unfortunately I didn't discover this forum until after I had ordered the kit.

    The one in question seems to be the "JL Hoot" type kit. looks outstanding on the bike but I have some finishing touches to complete.. chain needs to be shortened a bit, and I need to find a one Piece wide crank for it as my Schwinn Point Beach Cruiser doesn't have a 3 piece crank. I can't wait to fire it up and hit the road though.

    I also regret to say I was stupid and purchased the kit through ebay, from someone I found out while browsing this forum before I joined but after I had received the kit is persona-non-Grata here. I hope this doesn't effect your opinion of me as I was simply looking for the lowest cost 4 stroke kit available.

    Welcome aboard Chuck. I also bought before I found this forum. I think a lot of us found it while googling for fixes to the problems we were having.

    Welcome aboard, Chuck.
    Looks like we're two peas in a pod, sorta, as I'm pretty new to this Motored Bike thing myself.
    Personally, I don't care who you bought the bike from as long as you get a chance to enjoy it, share that enjoyment with the rest of us (via posts) and aren't mean to others.

    One More Welcome

    Welcome fellow Huasheng/JL Hoot owner. Doesn't seem to be too many of us around. I got mine last summer. You must be close to finishing with the install if you received the wide pedal set. I installed on a mountain bike, so all the kit parts worked for me. I'm sure you'll have questions. You'll find a lot of answers here...

    Hey Chuck, Welcome to MBc ! Home of may answers, and awaiting your ideas. Maybe you will be hooked and you'll build 10 more in your future. Keep posted and reading, and viewing. you'll see a ton of different designs and qualities. There all good.
  14. Chuck,my kit came from E-Bay too before realizing I could have saved shipping buying from DAX he's only a few minutes drive away from me.
