    Hi guys,
    I'm kinda new to the motorized bicycle thing,
    but i have made a couple motorized scooters that I loved.
    They had bike parts so I may post them later on.
    I've been building hotrods for a long time and have lotsa welding and fabrication experience.

    A friend in San Jose has been into the MB's for a couple years,
    and after considering buying a motorcycle,
    have decided a MB would be a funner choice,
    no dmv, no insurance, no mc license,
    as well I live about 2.5 miles from where I work,
    and it would be a fun commuter option.

    While the motorized scooter had a briggs and stratton and a go cart clutch,
    my plan is to start out with the cheapy chinese motor kits.
    I have been into prewar bicycles for a long time,
    and I've got a beater "shelby" frame that will be a perfect start.

    Here's pics of my shelby's ...

    I think the black one with an engine would be really cool,
    modifying the tank to hold gas.

    so that's about it.

    Welcome...like the Mountainman said, ride them...get used to them. Then, I'd go to http://www.staton-inc.com and look. Talk to Dave Staton at 405-605-3765, or look for a toll free number on the site...he is the premier bike motorizer (chain, friction, or whatever!)

    Welcome to this place!
    I too am close, Santee/ Lakeside area.
    I am sure you will enjoy this site. There is a ton of knowledge here, and the natives are friendly (mostly).
