    I'm from Grand Rapids MI, but may be moving south somewhere this fall. I'm 44 single and at the moment, without a job. So I'm concentrating on R&D plans right now.

    I'm looking to build a motorized bicycle with the following main goals.
    -Very likely pull a bicycle trailer
    -Economy budget
    -Easy conversion

    I'm looking for a comfortable ride for fairly long hauls. Perhaps something like a low rider/semi recumbent.

    I do have a 2cycle Craftsman (I think it's a)49cc(it's not local to me) still fully in tact which runs great.

    I do not have the bicycle nor mounting stuff. I'm thinking heavy duty and hopefully with suspension. Would prefer a low rider/semi-recumbent as I need a back rest for my arthritic back.

    I'll be posting questions for what's best suggested in the appropriate forums.

    Looking forward to learning and going from there. Thanks!
