I'm Ben, and I really like motorized bicycles. I live three blocks from work so I ride my non mb to work and back. I saw an add for a kit on ebay, I decided I really want to give it a shot. I did weeks of research befor finding the right bike to start with(in my opinion), a Shwinn Jaguar with black wheels, layed back seat post and 15 inch ape hangers. Pics soon.
I just bought my motor kit from a yet to be mentioned source (waiting to see the quality and completness of my order). I should be recieving it sometime this week, will be replacing all studs and doing a complete teardown and rebuild befor instalation. Thank you for your time.(c)

On my ride home from work today, I saw a guy riding a mb coming straight at me down hill!! looked like a smaller chinese kit but he was cruising along pretty well. As I stoped and drooled I realised my riding style has to change, I'm an agressive rider and battle traffic every day.Granted my commute is three blocks one way it's still a little like playing frogger.

With my ape hangers, I can't slip between tight spots like on my mountain bike, or jump off curbs.

I can't wait, come on UPS...
