Hi there (Rockland Co. NY)
I'm something of a hobbyist/tinkerer at heart and from the looks of things, this might fit the bill for an upcomming project. (past projects, R/C cars, R/C helicopters, electronic gadgets, guitars & Tube amps).
I live in southern NY State just north of the NJ border. My kids have recently ditched the training wheels and riding well on their two wheelers now. I got rid of my 18 speed bike long ago and since I've already learned how to ride a bicycle I''m thinking "why tire myself out with all that peddling when I could have a hybrid pedal/motor bike?" I'm currently scoping out bicycle options and motor pricing.
I'm not quite sure how happy the folks at Bear Mountain or Harriman State park would be but barring any issues there I think I'd consider giving this a go.
If there's anyone in the vicinity who's successfully completed a bike project please drop me a line.
