    Hello all :)

    I'm gonna take a stab at this whole MB thing and I've already gotten a wealth of information from this and other great sites. Thank you all for your help!

    I have had a '77 Schwinn Caliente for forever or so, love it to death, got about a billion miles on it, gettin' sick of all the pedaling, tho.

    So I got me an old snowblower for twenty dollars, it's a '78 Toro Snowmaster 20 with a lil' Tecumseh 2.5-ish HP 2-stroke engine in it (thank you Google, lol)

    The thing runs great, gonna rip the motor out and drop it onto the back of the Schwinn, all friction-drive style-- er- somehow..

    I am excited! This is gonna be fun, I will let y'all know how the experience goes.

    haha these smileys are awesomeness deluxe!!

    Hi thanks for the welcome!

    Got the motor outta that snowblower pretty easy, there's a whole bunch of frame parts and brackety type things I may be able to use, cuz I don't like spending money so much. Lol.

    I spent half a day holding the motor over the back wheel and staring at it, waiting for some kind of epiphany, which sort of came. I have a hanging bracket for a very large television like you would see in a sportsbar or tavern, it is made out of steel c-channel type material, I'm gonna grab the ol' hacksaw and see what happens.

    I would like to start a build thread in the DIY section once I get enough done with some pics to at least be of some entertainment value.


    See y'all later :)
