Re: How Did You Get Started With Motorized Bicycles?
My son moved home from Atlanta. He rode a peddle bicycle from Orlando, Fl to Lawrenceville, GA (about 60 miles N of Atlanta). I went to Atlanta to pick him up and found he hadn't a license for the past 14 years. He got a job about a mile away from home. One day he asked how hard it would be for me to build a electric bike. (AL laws..no license under 150CC, no insurance, no registration, no tag). I remember while in Viet Nam their primary form of transportation was on two wheels...thousands upon thousands. One thing I remember seeing was a bicycle with a front over the wheel engine (Solex). I searched and found this rather inexpensive China engine that was affordable for him. That was about June of 2009. Since then I've built 6 bikes (5 engines) virtually all trouble free. Did some more search and found two different forums, joined both and here I am today. By the way he got his license back after 800.00 plus dollars.
