Default YO YO from NJ

Hello, I am pretty new to the motor biking scene, and cycling in general. Ive rode a bikea lot when I was younger, and cycled as a form of cardio when I was into boxing.
Anyway short story I had gotten very sick for almost a year, and am getting back into exercising, and cycling in NJ and Philadelphia to get back into shape.
Doing research on cycling, and getting ideas for a helper motor on a bike, led me to the forums.
I am a welding tech by trade, and thought it would be a fun project to build a bike push trailer as a first project. I have just picked up a 2.5hp OHV Harbor freight engine, and am in the process of breaking in the engine, and am building the trailer. I still need to get a 5/8 dia centrifugal clutch, sprockets, and chain.
Not sure how the law is going to be, but a positive is the engine is super quiet, and shouldnt draw much attention.
Anyway, thats my story, and I hope to learn more and share information and ideas!
