Default Re: Hi From Lake Worth Florida

Hi thanks for the welcome, back in the early 80s when I was a kid I had a second hand factory bike that came with a front wheel drive friction motor,
I had no money at the time so it had a worn drive roller and worn tire so wet days were impossible to use the motor as it would just spin on top of the tire.
that bike was so big and industrial is wasn't very fun to ride without the motor
however on a dry day it seemed to do ok.
I guess for now I will just have fun reading the many post and hope I to stumble across the perfect setup that will fit my needs.
which for now should be reliable, and match or exceed the quality of my New Giant bike. most of all I would like a super quiet light weight motor kit that will help me pedal to 20 MPH fast and maintain 20 MPH efficiently.
it would not hurt if it looks good also .
So if anyone has been there done that and can save me a bunch of research
I am open to suggestions. as far as a budget I know you get what you pay for most of the time so I am willing to spend what I need to for the right setup.
