    G'day all, Steve here in houston. I'm a retired fella and this powered bicycle thing is going to be right up my ally. I love a new project. I'm very excited about getting started, though have decided to go slow and learn from the experience, successes and failures of others. I do have a bit of experience with home engineering, minor welding and fabricating small'ish parts. I have a kind of 'frankin'Schwinn jaguar that I think will become my first victim and will post pics once I get this forum business understood. I see that there is a wealth of information here, and I thank those who have shared their knowledge...Steve

    Hi welcome I am also new to this as I am an ex motorcycle rider that needs to get fit and have fun at the same time.
    I have yet to determine the power plant of my choice but it seems I will likely go with
    with a mid drive e bike conversion with a front drive friction Honda motor for the front wheel as a back up measure incase I have a problem with range and or a electrical failure.
    I am not sold completely on going strictly a gas setup as I just don't care for the noise and vibrations that a small engine will put on my neck and back that is already causing me to seek exercise and therapy.
    Good luck with your project and yes well all love pictures.
