Re: Can you skim my plan for restoration?
It all depends on what you're looking for in the way of a motorized bicycle. If you're just looking for transportation, then go with the suggestions to start fresh with a new bike and engine kit. That's the least expensive way.
On the other hand if you want a project that you can say "I did that" and show before and after photos, then take Agreen's advice and "go for it". Personally I'd go for the restoration and the satisfaction of making something from nothing and calling it yours. It won't be cheap but you'll learn a lot and can be proud of the results.
If you need help along the way we're always here to offer assistance.
The ultimate decision is yours but you did ask for advice and you're getting it.
