Wake up! Time to fly!
This is my latest obsession. I built one 10 years ago and sold it when I moved. Don't buy one of these kits and expect to slap it on in one day and go riding. I'm about to disassemble most of it so I can weld on permanent solid motor mounts. The clamp-on mounts allow the motor to shift no matter how tight you make them.

The bike is an old Murray rust bucket I picked up dirt cheap at a swap meet. It took several days to remove all the rust and get the bike working again. After I get all the bugs worked out I'm going to take it all apart again, paint it and put the fenders back on.
Remember when you were a kid and you clipped on baseball cards in the spokes so it sounded like an engine? I dreamed of having a real motor on my bike. It's just as much fun as I imagined it would be.
I was big into baseball in those days. I NEVER wasted a good trading card. I did however always steal the jokers and rule cards from my grandparents Hoyle playing card decks to use. Some friends would also stomp on aluminum soda cans or old beer cans and wedge them behind their seats in that U shape frame over the back tire.
Here If you have a powered bike like that they consider it necessary to be licensed and street legal and don't ever get caught on a side walk with one motor running or not. Even the old 70's style mopeds are required as well.
