Default Re: what did you do to your motorized bicycle today?

Today, I finished my engine swap from a 66cc 2 stroke to a 79cc predator, and then promptly crashed the bike while test riding it when I hit a patch of leaves during a turn and the new motor was powerful enough that it started to "burn rubber" and I laid down the bike. Had to stomp on the pedal to bend it straight again so it would clear the frame and I could ride it the rest of the way around the block (yes, I crashed while riding in circles around my block, my pride is horribly wounded), scraped my knee and elbow, but the bike's fine and so am I (mostly), so I'm happy. The new motor does about 45 and can take off from a standing start and accelerate up a steep hill and do wheelies!
