My name is John Steiner and I live in the foothills of the Great Smokey Mountains - prime bike riding country. Since my teen's I have ridden a variety of two wheel machines: After my Navy experience, I got a Whizzer - rode it for a year or so and traded it for a Cushman - rode it for three years - then sold it. In the meantime I have had Vespa's, Honda Dream Cycle, maxi-scooters: 650cc and 400cc. I sold my last scooter because of a physical problem that has since been corrected. Now - at age 85 - I am in process of building a 4cycle 49cc motor on a GT-1 bicycle - almost like the Whizzer of my teen-years. This is a great site - I have learned a lot from those of you who have contributed your knowledge - and need to learn more - so stay turned!
