    Welcome to the forum.
    You've found the right place for help and advice to get you on the road with a minimum of difficulty.

    Lots of experience here to draw from. There are 2 stroke, 4 stroke and electric bike builders here who will help you through the process of motorizing a bicycle.

    Good luck and have fun.

    Tom

    Welcome to the forum. Build it over the winter and ride it all summer.

    Ah, more frozen Minnesnowtans,
    Buick & Ziptie... if you find your way to the Boundary Waters come summer (Ely area), send a PM so we can arrange a ride. I'm at Eagles Nest Lakes near Bear Head State Park. Bring your bikes! Vroom...

    I try to come to Ely at least once a summer, but have camped at Bear head in even in the dead of winter at 20 below and gone snowmobiling to Ore and back many times. Best time of year to camp...up there. Just got to wear mukluks and polar fleece. Gods country for sure, what an amazing area to live. I could see where a Motorized bike would be perfect with all the little hills and the vast distances between anything, and out running the mosquitos at dusk... Sounds fun silverbear.

    Lets do it. The Bear Head Lake Road from Eagles Nest Lakes leading to the state park makes a great motor bike ride. Another great road is out the Echo Trail north of Ely overlooking Burntside Lake. Awesome, possum!
