    Hi all,
    I live and work in a "border town" and over the years have commuted to and from work on a number of different bicycles for varying periods of time until about 2004.
    Now,Southeastern Arizona weather, $4.29 per gallon diesel, and no place to park at work anymore was all it took!
    My USA built Worksman Industrial bicycle looks increasingly like a candidate for a motor. There is an excellent motorized bicycle builder in the area but I still have the urge to try to construct my own, and hope this site will help me make the decision.

    Welcome to the forum. Glad to have you with us. A few from AZ here, I'm in Tucson. I have as much fun building and working on these bikes as much as riding them. With gas prices as high as they are, the savings in fuel will pay for these fun bikes real fast. :ride2:

    Welcome JBAZ. The Worksman is an exelent platform to build on, they are indistructable, the rattier looking the better(^). I would reccomend Worksman wheels and drum brakes for anyone building a motorized bike...Kelly:ride2:
