    Hi folks, I'm new, and just wanted to say hi and get involved. I have been a motorcycle rider for most of my life, but have recently gotten intrigued by motorized bicycles. My first MB was a Diamondback with 27" wheels. I installed a boygofast 66cc engine and kit. Had to experiment with some chain tension and tracking issues, but it works great now. The wheel size isn't ideal, should be a 26", so I'll remount that on another bike soon. (I'm breaking some spokes)

    I bought a 50cc pocket bike engine and am about halfway through mounting that to a Zephyre Boardwalk cruiser via a rear rack mount and chain drive.

    Anyway, I now realize I am having as much fun with 50ccs as I can have with 1400 ccs, and life is good.

    Take care,
    Phillip

    Welcome to the forum. Motorized bikes are far simpler than a modern motorcycle and I think that simplicity is a big part of the appeal.

    I totally agree, there is something wonderful about the minimalist yet effective motorized bike. Thanks for the warm welcome to the forum.
