Hey, I'm Eric. I'm from Michigan and I'm new to the entire motor biking scene, but I am fascinated by it. I plan on building a motor bike right after I get a few things sorted out.
I work at a bike shop in Novi and so I've got the hook up with some bike parts. My boss is hooking me up with a frame and another coworker is hooking me up with a fork and components, so I'm really excited about that.
I was reffered to a site called bicycle engine kit, bike engine, bicycle engine, bicycle motor
and after poking around here I've noticed some of you are dealing with them. That is where I plan to order my engine from (the 65 cc frame mount(I wish there was an 80 lol))
I was wondering if anyone could offer up some reviews about the retailer. one ofmy co workers orderd his engine from there and he let me ride his bike around a bit today. it was a blast.
My other question is, Since I plan to commute with the bike I'd need to know laws and such reguarding motor bicycling. Is the bike street legal? Is it considered a bike or a moped? (or some other classification..) do I need to have any registration, lights or fancy doo-dads to make it legal? And what is the law reguarding helmets and the motor bicycling?
any and all answers are apreciated.
