Default New guy from Pittsburgh.

Just wanted to introduce myself. I just found this site a few days ago and it's great. I am 62 and recovering from cancer surgery. I figured riding a bike would be good exercise but with my condition and all the hills we have here I couldn't ride much. I found the motors listed on ebay and finally ordered one from BGF. I bought a mountain bike from target and put it together. I haven't gone too far yet still fine tuning brakes but this thing runs good. Some people think I'm nuts for getting into this at my age. I figure, I spent 4 years in the service (vietnam era), worked 10-12 hours a day for the next 40 years to support a wonderful family and now I wanted to build a plaything for me. I'll post some pics when I fiqure out how to do it. Thanks for all the helpful information thats here.
