    Hey Guys and Gals! I've been lurking around for a few days soaking in some information and finally decided I would say hi.

    I remember seeing a motored bike when I was a kid but haven't thought about one in years till a few days ago when a budy of mine showed me a picture of one he bought a local bike shop. I've been hooked since!!

    I'm in the planning process, deciding what bike I want, and what motor to put on it. I've already found a wealth of information on this site and I'm looking forward to my first build.

    I'm definately going with a cruiser this build and I want to take my time and not rush the process.

    This is the bike I have in mind. Motorized 26" Micargi Rover GX Beach Cruiser - Do It Yourself Bike Motor Engines BikeBerry.com With the angelfire super rat 66cc upgrade. I was thinking about getting the kit with the motor to make my life a little easier. Any thoughts on this? Anyone experienced with buying a kit like this?

    Josh

    I'm a bit further south than you. I'm in the Mandeville/Covington area. It's about 30 miles north of New Orleans.

    That's a cool kit, McB! And at a very nice price too. Looks far more sensible than what I'm looking to do. I'm actually kinda tempted to start with this one too...
