    Hey everyone! I just wanted to introduce myself. My Name is Jesus, but i prefer going by "J"

    I just recently got into motor bikes and I personally think that there is nothing, and I mean NOTHING better than riding a bike that u can pedal, or if you get tired, switch on the engine and go.

    Im currently working on a project. Its for a 20" "Chopper" style Bike. I had an old scooter that I took apart and decided to mount the engine on the bike. Its quite a feat, but I feel that with time, patience, and a little TLC it will come to live by mid June, if not sooner.

    The motor, all I could find out about is that its a 50cc 2 stroke motor, that tops off at 45 mph, at least it did when it was on the scooter itself.

    Let me know what you guys think, I'm going to be posting pictures soon and hopefully I can get some info out of these forums.

    Its great to be here, and feels even better to know that there are also people out there that are as fascinated by motor bikes as I am.

    Have a nice day everyone, and I will be checking back soon!!

    Hi J and welcome to Motorbicycling!
    Just makes sure your brakes are real good when you get this thing going.

    I'm sure you'll find lots of good ideas in the DIY section. What scooter did that motor come off of?

    It was an Xtreme Gas Powered Scooter. The XG-470 to be exact.
    I had bought it used last year for fun, but the frame was giving me more problems than fun.
    So I just decided to tear it apart and throw it all on the Bike.

    Already have the throttle, electric start switch, and other switches on.
    I still have ALOT to do. But I hope it will be worth it...
