Re: How Did You Get Started With Motorized Bicycles?
When I was 15 or so, I rode my 12 speed Peugeot touring bike about 40 miles daily. One day, I saw someone zip along with a motorized BMX bike into a gas station. Asked how much to fill it and he said 50 cents. It looked like a weed whacker motor, but I was piqued nonetheless. A few years ago, still riding a bicycle daily about 30 miles, I decided to take the plunge, as I had an extra couple hundred bucks. Picked up a china girl kit, and it's been an unstoppable addiction ever since.
To this day, I ride bicycles as my only mode of transportation, but now - they're mostly all motorized.
