    Hi This Is My First Day, A Friend Was Telling Me About The Motor Bikes Yesterday. I Didn`t Know About All The Kits Etc. I Found The Kits On The Net Yesterday, Wanted To Order One Right Away. Then I Run Into Your Forum, Lucky Me !! )In 1950 I Was 11 Yrs Old, Built My Motor Bike With A 3/4 Hp Briggs With Popit Intake Valve. Direct Drive, No Brakes, No Throttle, Just Hold The Kill Button Dn Til It Slowed Enough. 6 Inch Pipe For Exhaust. $.03 To Fill It Up. Yesterday When I Was Young !!!! Those Kits Are The Cats Meow. Looks Like Fun. (^) Problem Is I Am 290 Lbs, 5`14 1/2" Tall. :confused: Later People. Ron

    If anyone knows where Rusty and Kevin or the guys from Estonia are send them a link. I think rusty has moved to the darkside of mopeds but it would be cool to see those guys again....Kelly

    Has anyone seen this guy? If you see this, I told you that it would come back to haunt yourotfl

    This is why I'm here. I was on the other site, and I'm tired of the flag waving, the poo pooing of the crappy times motors. I just want to build more bikes, and not be told I'm hurting the economy, or buying smuggled goods as they are epa outlawed... I LOVE my old Kings motor, and this new motoschwinn II is my best therapy for my ultra high stress job.

    I hope I'm home finally.

    My experience exactly with a very similar site with a very similar name. This site is way more comfortable for a newbie and a computer challenged guy like me. I'm still asking my very busy wife to help me with the computer, so forgive me if I do step on toes or post on the wrong thread. I was admonished and made to feel the a frat boy pledge on the other site. If I do ever run into a local know it all from the other site...

    Thanks, that's SO good to hear. Well I have a new clutch cable to run, and a kill switch to install. Photos of MotoSchwinn II will be up by tomorrow.

    Thanks again!

    Censorship, like an appendix, is useless when inert and dangerous when active.

    So true. I'm happy here. Nobody trashing my motor, or telling me I'm one of the reasons the economy is in the tank because I want to buy 2-3 more...
