    Hi,

    Im new to the forums, but to motorized bikes. ive been drooling over some spookytooth bikes for about a year now and ive decided to go the diy route, and save some scratch.

    I was just wondering if it was possible to convert a road bike into an MB. More specifically would i have trouble attaching the acceleograph throttle onto the road bikes handlebar?

    the bike im getting tomorrow has the drop down handlebar design, if that makes sense. i tried posting a a link but i have to be an active member first.

    if you want to check out the bike, google: vista cruiser schwinn bike southjersey craigslist

    i appreciate any help, the quicker the responses the better! im getting the bike tomorrow and want to know if i should go an alternate route for the chosen bike

    you could always just put some MTB handlebars on it... a lot of ppl who have fixies or SS's do it.

    I wish I knew what an 'acceleograph throttle' is. I might want one.
