I got the idea one morning when I woke up and looked at the clock on the night stand and there was a can of starter fluid next to it. My first thought was "...You might be a MBer"
got another one!

if every time you see someone else's bicycle and think to yourself "how can i get a motor on that?" you might be a MBer

Well this isnt what I did to my motor bike today...but what I will do to it when my new motor arrives. Ah maybe both. I just ordered a Super Titan XC50S from Duane with friction drive. Putting it on my Cannondale H600 Hybrid. Getting tired of the 2 cycle fix it weekly thing. I enjoy the fixing part but when I need it to work and it dosnt it just p!$$es me off. I guess Im in the 4 stroke club now. Well maybe a little of both.

I put on the clamp from the exhaust to my bike to keep it more stable; should have done it earlier, maybe the tip may not have fallen off so easily...

Well, hopefully this will make things run smoother needless to say.

broke the little plastic pin on the throttle that holds it in place.

drilled a hole straight through and bolted it in place.
