    Hi' I am very keen to learn more about fitting a motor to my OCC Scwinn Stingray, we have a few motor supply places here in Australia, heard great reports about them all, after reading postings from your forum members I now wish to learn more about motor choices, really want to get it right first time. Many thanks for allowing me to join this terrific forum, best regards from Emu in Aus, 65 years young......trk

    I prefer to think that I've reached the point in my life that I really don't give a rat's patoot what people think of me. Actually, it's quite liberating!!

    Anyway's, good luck, emu, on your build!

    Thanks Guys for your welcome, truely appreciated. About the OCC Stingray's from what I am reading fitting a motor to them seems to require quite a few extra changes and bits, that's could be ok but I am more keen to keep it simple as possible, would like to hear from guys whom have done it themselves, down here were a bit innovative and surely I could make most of the bits up myself, best regards from old Emu in Aus. dnut
