Smile New from TX - Box on doorstep today!

Hi everyone!

I'm new here, and new to MB's.

I just got the 80cc kit I ordered from ebay, and next I need to find a bike. I'll be looking around at thrift stores and pawn shops. If I can't find something cheap there or CL, I'll probably get the Cranbrook from Wally World and keep it all Chinese! LOL

I've been reading a lot of posts here, and this sounds like a lot of fun. I did/do have some power concerns, but I have to remember that this is supposed to be a motor assisted bicycle, not a pedal assisted motorcycle.

Maybe someday I will go a bit crazy and build a pedal assisted small motorcycle and use my Cuyuna 215 (20hp 2-stroke) in a bicycle frame, but it will have to be built really strong! LOL

I also have a couple of bigger bikes, a 78 GL1000 Goldwing, and a 73 Ironhead Sportster, but I was really wanting something small to just zip around locally with, and a motorized bicycle sounds pretty good for that. Plus it's cheap, just like me! LOL

Anyway, thanks for all the great info, and I'll post a build report when I get started.
