My name's Chuck and I'm from NY, one of the states where motorized bicycles are completely illegal. That's the bad part. The good part is that I live on the NY/CT border and it's just 3 miles to Connecticut where motorized bicycles are totally legal.
I just completed my first build, a used no-name beach cruiser frame with a Grubee 66cc kit from Piston Bikes. I followed many of the tips on this site when building the bike and I am very grateful for them.
Motorized bike kits existed back in the 1950s and I've wanted one since I first saw one as a kid.
I like'd to get in touch with other MBers in the NY/CT area--Brewster-Patterson-Pawling, Danbury-New Milford-Kent.
