Default One more noob from Ohio

Hi there, Just got home tonight with my new toy.. It is a Giant ATX 860 mountain bike I picked off Craigslist for just $75. I am not real sure of the year, but it is blue and silver 18 inch frame with 26 inch tires and is aluminum. Has shocks on the forks and the seat post. I think the seat post is not original. This is to become my own motorized bicycle project... My first of course. I am really a car guy. Had a nice Diamondback mountain bike years ago in the Navy that was stolen after having it only a year and a half... A few motorcycles here and there, but nothing serious. I first found out about these motorized bikes just two days ago and I instantly fell in love with the whole concept. I am hoping to get the old girl in top condition before adding a 49cc four stroke from and a Sick bike shifter kit. I am missing 2 spokes on the rear rim, how did that happen? Other than being a little dirty and the front shocks rubber booties are dry and cracked, everything else seems in perfect working condition. So.... did I do good? Opinions please... I can take it! Oh, and its great to be here... Todd.
