    Cruiser Bikes Is What I Likes (kinda GEBE specific)

    When the sun comes up, I'm going to take a picture of my carport/shop, because this may be the only time I have the models I call my Chevy, Buick and Cadillac cruisers in one spot. I just checked Amazon.com, for comfort cruiser bikes, read the reviews, and advise potential GEBE customers to BUY...

    Bicycles are in the $700 billion Bailout Bill

    Bikes in Wall St. Bailout Bill This is all I found so far, in the $700 billion "rescue plan", but I plan on changing my advertising blurb..... Since I use the Tanaka 33cc and R/S 35cc, I contend they will meet the definition of "bicycle", and all the extras (tubes/liners/baskets/wide...

    Ethanol killing small engines

    Dad had an Amoco station back in the 70's-80's, we had guys drive from a way over yonder to get Amoco white in their pickup trucks. I knew a small engine retailer who warned me way back when about the dangers of ethanol, especially in 2 cycles. So my brother says he saw a report, about this...

A customer who has built/repaired a lot of bikes, but just got his first engines for him and his wife, told...

    I just got an e-mail wondering about motorized bicycle laws

    And I remember thatsdax, myself and a few others nailing down all that foo-fer-rah, FEDERAL trumps STATE. I'm not building anything over the 35cc 4 cycle, that's all that the GEBE system needs here in the Appalachian foothills. When I got into this, staying legit & under the 49 cc was part...
