....and he loves to put them out on his front porch. There are dozens of them. That is where I first fell in love with my ladies' 1950 cruiser that is currently being worked on.

A few months back, I decided to see what he had that was new. Alas, I came across a Tas Spitz Tanaka bike bug on another men's 1950s cruiser. I tested it out and loved how it ran. So I bought it and took it home.

I rode it a few times but realized that I like electric bicycles rather than gas-powered bicycles, so I got an ebike. I decided to put up the bike bug on the auction block so that someone else can have as much enjoyment out of it as I did. This forum will help me do that, as well as research other motor-powered bikes that are currently available.

Welcome to the forum upstate! It's a very serious addiction, and most of us should go to MB Anonymous.

How much ya wanting for the bike bug? :D
