I am a newbie on this site, and need advise on what kind of reliable bicyle motor to buy. I know little or nothing about these motors.

I am 74 years old, and on a fixed income. And, since price of gas is going sky high,I want a motorized bike to ride around the neighborhood.

What type of reliable motor kit is recommended. Where one can buy parts if needed.

Is a Schwin bike a good candidate as a motorized bike.

What type tire should be on the bike.

I am a mechanic, and have rebuilt cars. So, will not have any problems installing a bike motor. Just that my knowledge is zero.

I live in Virginia Beach, Virginia. Which is a big city with many bicycle stores. But,no stores (that I am aware of) that deals in bike motors.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.
