Lotta writers here too. Post away (pics too).
The Chinese scooters and mopeds are an abonination! Glad you didn't buy one. Now having said that, I'll say this; these frame mount bicycle motor kits are from China too, but not full of the problems that the CCS (cheap chinese scooter) or mopeds are.
As for the bike- quick release wheels are O.K. and ANY bicycle that you can fit a motor kit on is worth having your husband mount one on...
