I CONSTANTLY get stopped on my motorized bicycles with people asking how to build one and where to get the parts and all kinds of stuff. I'm glad I found this place. From now on, I can just send them to motoredbikes.com and tell them everything they could possibly need to know will be in here.

I will probably just print the web address over and over on a piece of paper and cut them out so I can hand them out like business cards.

Nice!!!

I am going to try and get some more stickers ordered this weekend. I will probably order a @!#$load so I can send everyone a bunch to hand out to people.

if i wanted to type a page worth of stories every day, i could!!!

every time i go out, everywhere i go, i have to schedule extra time just to "socialize" & answer questions.

today, in the totally miserable drizzel, i spent 2.5 HOURS talking to guys in ocean park...giving out the MBc addy and telling 'em i'll be selling them soon 8)

there's a guy (deaf & mute, a wealthy recluse) who has an older whizzer in xlent shape...we passed each other by the grocers'...we stopped, looked at each others' bikes, looked at each other, smiled, & went on our way, how cool is that? :D

meantime, give this post the mental two-thumbs up, because this afternoon our state voc-rehab guy gave
us a "we can do that" to our proposal to open a retail bicycle shop with federal small business funds 8)

Probably one armed to boot.

Anyway, I'm also about to order business cards with the MotoredBike.com label, to pass out next week.

TOM- you better Swear To G-d no more name changes!! Or at least NOT until I get these 1,000 cards dispersed along the Gulf.

Yeah. The reason we changed it from motor-bicycles.com is that it is hard to communicate this idea orally. What does one think if you say "motor dash bicycles dot com"? They think its "MotorDashBicycles.com"

I had a guy start asking me questions about my bike yesterday and all I had done was slow to make a turn. also all the guys at work are very interested and ask about the bike or if I rode it in that day. its not the reaction I exspected after growing up with the "never let your friends see you riding a moped mentality"

may i suggest

maybe this has already been done but my search came up empty ,
yes there are stickers ,and other people made cards ,,,,but this would be quick and easy and we would all have the same card for all members


i would like to suggest ,, that a full page of cards that i can download from this site or request auto email ,, and print off ,so i can pass on to interested party's .. there would be maybe 20 cards with lines so i could cut out the cards ,, or maybe i could print off on some kind of business card software
------------------------
- MotoredBikes.com -
- adim--- -
- moderators-- -
-------------------------
this would make life much easier to tell interested party's
go to MotoredBikes.com ,,heres a card ,, by, by. see you later ,,
it would also help to promote this forum ,,
maybe a,,, download cards page,, stickers


like i say cards would make my life easier

just to add a bit ,,i got some type paper here that you make stickers out of ,,you just run it through the printer ,and then you peal of the back and stick it on the bike etc ,, it make very good stickers ,,i am sure this paper is available everywhere

so maybe if you had cards page , and a sticker page with different stickers (49 cc is one for sure ) members don"t expect you to give away and mail cards and sticker and it will be impossible soon with membership growing ,,i would have to think especial blank card can be bought at any computer store and run through the printer,.that would make me believe that 80 percent of members will carry cards ,just to get rid of so many questions ,, and if that is the case just watch the forum grow ,, 300 members passing out cards
