Question Still dreaming

New here today, although I've been around for seventy-two years. Last week's project was easy. Although the Bladz electric scooter is no longer manufactured, parts are still available, and much to my grandaughter's delight, I was able to get the scooter up an running with the help of two new batteries, a new throttle assembly and additional air in the tires.

Already started on my new project: the disassembly and restoration of my other gradaughter's mother's seventies Schwinn Hollywood youth bicycle with purple metal flake banana seat.

As for myself, I ride about thirty miles a week on my electric assist Charger bicycle. I am retired from the food service industry and working part time at our local ACE Hardware.

I owned a blue Sears Allstate (PUCH) two stroke motorcycle when I was seventeen. I rode that bike all over Nevada and Northern California. Later, with wife and family, we were sailing when we weren't camping or exploring the desert and mountains in our free-wheeling two cycle Saab.

I truly enjoy cooking and spending time with friends and family (wife deceased).

And I'm here at this forum because I have such good memories of riding on two wheels. My best friend, Walter had a Powell motor scooter, and I still fondly remember the Whizzer ads in Boys Life. I also read Mechanics Illustrated, Popular Mechanics and Popular Science. Well, I've never owned a motorized bicycle, but I think about it. Reading what others are thinking and doing is very exciting and motivating. I've recently road tested a Whizzer NE-5 and a Tomas Revival. Really, am I too old?
