Good Morning,
I just recently got into motor bicycling (well it's been over 40 years since my last anyway ).
I have a 90 mile commute (once a week) for work and was looking for a cheap way to avoid buying another car or motorcycle with all the costs involved. I settled on a motorized bicycle as a solution. After much research I ruled out electric because the range I need put it way...... outside my budget.
I settled on a Staton roller drive kit with the Robin engine.
I started with an old GT Talera mountain bike I got free and after putting just over 1000 miles on it I have decided to try moving it over to a simple cruiser. The mountain bike was beating me up pretty badly on some of the roads I use.
I bought a new bike yesterday and should have it done today and ready for next weeks commute.
During my research, building, and modifications I found myself browsing through this site often and decided I'd try showing a little support by joining.
Thanks everyone for the help so far and I look forward to trying my hand at contributing.
