    I am a NEW-bi nubi, to bicycles in general, and motorized bikes even more so. I am trying to self-educate about both. (my guy bought a pre-built, so I don't even have the install info to apply) I'm looking for assembly diagrams of all the parts of beach cruisers (including hubs and all "inner workings) and raw 80cc motors (which thanks to all of you I now know is actually a 66cc). I have searched the web with every combination of words I can think of and have come up with NOTHING! I am learning all this GREAT info and tips from ALL of you, but don't undestand a LOT of it because I am NOT familiar with "basic bicycle". Can any one tell me where I can find such information? I REALLY need help! (I am mechanically inclined . . . was a fencing contractor for 15 yr. . . . HE is NOT! So it's up to me to learn all the info I can. In advance, THANK YOU ALLfor whatever help you can give me!!! It will be GREATLY appreciated! I,m so grateful I found this site with all of you "giving" people! I'd REALLY be LOST without you!!!

    I would try Sheldon Brown-Bicycle Technical Information

    It has info on almost all types of bicycles and rebuild/repair guides within. Spend some hours going through that site, than on the topic of motorbikes I am with Venice read through these forums for some hours too.

    hi kygaga, welcome.

    I started like you. I still today get confused on part names, but I've learned. What I did was take apart a old bmx bike some neighbors had, and if I didn't know a part I'd just ask in the catbox what it was. There is also a book "Richards bicycle alamac" or something close to that. It's a great source of info.

    Hope this helps and welcome :D
    Sam

    Excellent site/advice.

    I would also pop into the local library, they always have books on bicycles.

    I bought two very good ones last summer for a dollar a piece at a yard sale, if I can find them (might have given them away) I'll send them to you for the asking....I'll get back to you if I find them.
