    Hey there, been lurking and waiting patiently to buy/build a gas bike, and just recently was told by a co-worker that his neighbor had a motorized bike for sale...$20!. What'd I do?... I bought the dang thing of course!! Now Im in the process of seeing just how good/bad my investment really is before I swap the kit over to my vintage Murray beach cruiser (Monterey). The end game results will be to use the newly acquired frame and build up some early 1920's board track bike.
    Im hoping to end up with something I can strap to the back of my '37 Pontiac and look like its from that time period.
    Hotrodder, machinist, all around decent dude.. & I hope to learn alot to keep my 'new' hobby scootin' on down the road!

    Welcome to the forum. Several old hot rodders here so you're in good company.

    If the bike runs you made a good investment. $20.00 ? You did good.
    Let us know if we can offer any help. Sounds like you have the basic knowledge but motorized bicycles can be 'quirky' in some respects. Just ask or use our search feature to get advice if/when you need it. Good luck, have fun.
