    Yeah, I know they're not really 80cc.

    I got my kit last week from Powerking, and mounted it on a Giant mountain bike....and so far, I love it. Some of the nuts/parts are pretty lightweight, and one was not threaded, but overall easy to install. Took 3 hours. Kit should come with zip ties!

    I just got back from a 70 mile test ride through the hills of Wine Country. Grades were steep between Pope Valley and Angwin, so I had to peddle a couple of times, but not so hard as to break a sweat.

    I love my motorized bicycle and ride it every day. My friends all love it so much I am building 5 more this week.

    Glad to be here. Trying to learn as much as I can here. I have 5 bikes to build this week. People keeps asking me to "build then one too!" I'll bet you I build 20 bikes in September.
    2 people flagged me down today and ordered one right on the spot. We'll see what happens.
    I just got a Schwinn Point Beach today for a friend and I'm building that one tomorrow. Mounting it should be interesting.

    You know, originally I was going to build a beach cruiser, but I'm glad I built the Giant. A mountain bike is really cut out for the abuse.
    I am building a cruiser or two this week, but I don't think I would dare take them the places my Giant will go!

    Hey Sarge, welcome to the forum from a fellow vet. I was attached to a wing group out of El Toro and Santa Anna LTA. Good to have you here.
    Got any pictures of your crate? :cool:
