    hi
    I have a old huffy "high ridge" bike sitting around. It looks very old, and i was wondering
    if anyone else had experiance with a road bike motorized.
    Sine the ram-horn handlebars may not be good for a twist throttle, maybe a kustom chainsaw trailer on chain drive?.wee. ya this is what my Stoopid bro thinks

    Some here have done the racer's and swapped out the ram-horn for a straighter one, be carefull of the width of the crank pedals as the bikes are generally narower. Would be good low weight bigger wheels.

    Road bikes arent suitable for a MAB in my opinion for me, the tires are way too thin and the frames are too big.

    I think they are cool, I have built a few, they are faster than a 26" bike.

    Nice build wild, I used to ride a 27 in 10sp when I was a kid alot and have alot of experience with them. Riding around town where I live now the sidewalks and ruts you run into are terrible. I just cant see myself riding around at 20 mph with those thin tires and no suspension at all. If the road was perfect and the side walks a road bike to me would be possible but thats just my opinion on them.
