Hello fellow MBers, I'm dethmetal mike from splendora TX. I'm new to motorized biking, finished my first build about a week ago \m/. Is a 93 huffy sledge hammer mountain bike with a 80cc kit bought from boygofast. Started out as a 24 inch bike but back wheel was bent so I pirated a 20 in wheel from a abandoned disney princess bike ( pink rim with white tire ). Did the trick for replacment as bonus had coaster brake so allowed me to set the bike up how I wanted - coaster in the back and hand brake in the front. Spray paint and new tire took care of colors and in the end was left with a sweet starting point. Was a riot to ride for the less than half day it lasted. Bearings fell out from the clutch and chewed up my gears both big and small and now it won't run at all. Totally cool though - ordering me a replacement engingine tomorrowand should have it back on the road before end of next week.
Anyways was also wondering if there were any of you out there from my neck o the woods here in north houston. I am hoping to findd some locals to tool around with. And maybee find a local dealer as I can tell I will be heavily moding my new ride heavily
