    I recently bought an 80cc engine and put it on an older Specialized mountain bike. When I got the kit, the motor mounts weren't even close to fitting. So with many hours of filing and grinding it fit. It was thrilling to hear the engine come to life the first time.

    Anyway I live in Eugene OR, the bike capital of the world. It is amazing how many paved and non paved bike trails there are in this area. Many, many miles.

    I joined this forum to see if anyone is as excited as am in this new mode of transportation.


  2. WELCOME to MBc Rich! Oh yea were all excited here. You've made it home. Kick back and relax!
    Yea we got miles and miles of trails out here in Colorado too!
