Welcome abord ironhorse.

We're always fixing to do something around here. When you see how much traveling ya can do for a few bucks..........you'll understand. You'll want to ride it to the grocery store, on all your errands, and even to work if ya can. I've got a bike carrier for my car and I figure if I had to drive on the four lane a few miles to where I could park the car and finish the trip on the bike.....then that's what I'd do. There's more than one way to "Hybrid" a car ! rotfl

Then ride back to the car later, rack the bike, and drive the "mothership" on back home.

If ya have a high speed connected computer, watch this ol' boy from Alabama's story:

Thanks for the welcome. OK if y'all are interested- Pick up the new bike next week. From what I have read, there is no way to tell a 50 cc from an 80:confused: cc motor.Other than taking the head off and measureing the :confused: width of the bore?.They are saying the motor will be 80cc 2 stroke. I've read that these are actually only 67cc...Also the bike has disc brakes, and it appears only the 36:confused: tooth sprocket will fit under the caliper.Could I go with back cntr pull in order to put a larger sprocket or not enough stopping power? Dang! Running out of room here and still so many questions. Thanks mangs. p.s. ... My new wheels will henceforth be called Greg. I decided.

I di'int put those faces on my last post. 43 year olds don't usually put smiley faces in their correspondences. Unless it's a small smiley face over an i . Will try to delete these liberties taken with the Queens English.
