Post appleroy45 - Old Whizzer Motorbike Guy

I'm just an old Whizzer Motorbike guy that was introduced to motor kits for bicycles by a old friend at our 2008 45th year high school class reunion.
I was riding my older brothers Whizzer Motorbike when I was 11 years old and at that time it was really something for me to have the opportunity to do that. My brother didn't like it at all but I just kept whining and nagging my Dad until he finally got fed up and got on my brother to let me ride so I'd shutup. Hay, what can I say but it worked.
Later when I was in High School a friend of mine had a Whizzer Motorbike that was in a bunch of pieces with extra parts so I bought it off him. I then proceeded to completely restore it back to its original pristine operating condition. Not to long after that I sold it like a dummy. I also was a motorcycle guy when I was younger.
So a motorized bicycle is a very old fond memory for me and since I have a MGX Mongoose Mountain Bike I thought it would be interesting to put a motor on it with a jackshaft to the pedal sprocket and have some fun. I have an advantage as my younger brother is a very good machinist who can help me I hope with fabricating parts for the conversion.
I'm glad to be a part of this forum and it is my hope that I can pass along some wisdom to whomever I might be able to help.
