Re: Build Recommendations
Welcome to the forum. We're glad you've come in from the cold and decided to start your first motorized bicycle project.
You've received some good, solid advice from my friend, Agreen, and I can't add much to it. It sounds as if you're certainly on track with your project and we wish you luck. If we can help in any way, let us know.
Good luck, have fun and ride safe. Above all always remember that it is a bicycle, not a motorcycle. Be aware that the components you're dealing with were designed with pedal power in mind. When you add an engine you need to be sure the bike parts are up to the task. Brakes, bearings, rims, spokes, tires and frame need attention before looking for more speed and power.
