Hi Y'all,

Thanks so far to all who helped me pick a kit, etc.

Got the first one up and running. A cheap K-Mart Schwinn cruiser style with a Dax kit. Working out the kinks still (lock pin fell out of the clutch assembly, seams to slosh gas out of the tank, my right hand always seems to wreak of gas after each ride - do these grips just stink?, idle seems to rev up way too high about half the time on clutch dis-engagement - will try to find an air leak with carb cleaner and Duane's instructions.

I now have a second kit (gonna try one from BoyGoFast) and a brand new 21 speed comfort bike (Giant Sedona) to put it on. Trying to figure out a bike set up that will be just as easy to human power as not. "Concept versatile".

I have a million questions, but will try to find other locations to post most of them (for now, how about: good source for master links, some kind of material to line the tank seam with? - my left knee is raw, 6 volt lighting systems and horns that do not kill the engine? simple - read cheap - switches that are easy to mount? .....

More to come, Jeff
