Default Hi from downunder

Hi there,
name is Chris and I have just fitted a Skyhawk 55cc GenIIa motor to my bike. i am using an early picture of as my avatar.

From delivery to first ride was 3 hours.
I use it to ride to work, I only have a 2km commute each way, but it is uphill going there, and I do not want to arrive sweaty. Also, as I am on night duty, it is 11pm to 7am and over winter it gets quite cold. I can not justify starting the car for such a short journey.
So I purchased a bike from the local "tip shop" for $10 and fitted a motor to it.

Now I am the envy of all my work colleagues.
Cheers for now
