    I'm a newbe to this forum and a newby to motorized bikes but I'm not a newby myself. I'm 78 years old and I'm a bike and motorcycle nut. I have six motorcycles, a Goldwing trike, a 2 stroke cruiser motorized bike, two pedal type mountain bikes and I just purchased a Mongoose Dolomite 26" fat tire bike that I want to put a motor of some kind on.
    Since I am new to this forum I hope to learn a lot from the members and meet a bounch of new bikers. Thanks for having me.flg.x.

    Drag_bike, thanks for the pics. They will help me when I decide which engine I'm going to use. I've got a new 212cc Preditor but I think that might be an impossible task. Thanks again and I will probably be asking more questions.
