Considering that a lot of gasoline stations down here are out of gas ... and there are long lines at the ones that do have gas ... I decided our 2nd vehicle (my wife owns the car) would be a motorized bike. I may get wet some days, but it would certainly save on fuel ... and get me there faster than just pedaling. I bought a Power King "limited" from BlueCollarBikes of the "80cc" version. The problem was that it would NOT fit on any of my current bicycles. It could be put on my neighbor's Peugeot bicycle provided we put pedal cranks that flair out ... because the current ones would hit the engine ... or find some way of mounting the engine above the tops of the cranks.

So I also bought a GEBE and I'm putting it on my Sun EZ-Speedster SWB recumbent bicycle. I need the replacement solid axle instead of the QR (quick release) ... I had it shipped Overnight mail ... the Post Office merely left a little note in my mailbox this morning (too late for me to pick it up today - they are only open from 0800-1000) telling me that they have it ... they couldn't be bothered to come to my door or leave it on the porch.

Next thing I'll have to do is worry about getting some decent lights ...
