Re: Motorized Bicycle Take a Tip...Leave a Tip
If this is your 1st project, paint the bike.
Take it all apart, sand it, paint it, & put it back together. You'll get to know your bike & adapt to a mechanical state of mind.
Then before you put the motor on, ride it for a few miles with some screwdrivers & wrenches handy. This way you won't be going 30 mph when you find the mistakes you made when you rebuilt it.
