Re: Hello, Im new to this forum and to motorized bicycling. Im from Syracuse NY
We're glad you joined up.
Be prepared to tinker quite a bit. These bikes are temperamental. Though it can be annoying, it has it's advantages. Your bike is your own personal machine. And it's not all that difficult, anyway.
I'd also urge you to buy your engine kit from one of the vendors who sponsor this site. Ebay vendors will save you only a couple of bucks. Hardly enough to say so and not enough to matter.
But the info and advice you can find here is absolutely priceless. We'd all be in trouble without it. The sponsors who help keep this site going deserve the sales that we can give them.
