Default Re: Noob in NE Ohio

I am in youngstown.

My friend says he has a broken electric bike or moped. Which I will see if I can fix. My lady wants an electric.

However, I stick by my thought that I really need a gas motor for long distance and cheapness. I won't turn down the broken bike though. Already looking at the heavy duty hinges, and I do have a nice Shindaiwa(43cc?) chainsaw I bought on sale. It would be a shame to chop it up though. I have a few large stainless sheetmetal scraps( from a sink cutout, heavy sheet maybe 16 ga.)

Leftover dishwasher parts are available. A small blower is apart for repair, its a ~26cc homelite, probably too small to pull me(about 210 lbs and a trailer).

That ebike was very stealth, I dont know why the police don't have em, silent and fast.
the batteries are still very expensive though.
