Re: How did you get introduced to motor-assisted bicycling?
First saw MB's in 1967 in Viet Nam (front wheel drive). Thought they were kind of innovative. Fast forward to 3/2009, my son didn't have a drivers license for the past 14 years (33 years old). He peddled a bicycle to and from work (also peddled from Orlando, FL to Atlanta, GA, over 500 miles), and thought about a electric motor powered bicycle. I told him I didn't think that would be the way to go, and told him I saw MB's back in 1967 while in Viet Nam. Looked for the front mounted engine, and the only thing I came up that was in his ball park is the HT. He checked on local laws concerning the legalities, and here we are 3 years and still riding the same MB. Bought 6, 5 from Ebay, and satisfied with everything except a defective coil on the first bike bought.
