I have building motorized bikes for about 8 months now. I have been member on alot of FB pages. I am tired of FB. I have built 3 bikes and my first was a s Schwin Meridian. I added a engine to it to use at work. The 3 bikes are to use as daily rides, I have found them more fun than my motorcycle. I definitely wear a helmet and a bright vest. I also run without a baffle to get the attention of drivers.
