I've been doing some reading at this site. There are a couple of frame mounted 4 stoke kits out there now also and there's also ones with the motor over the rear tire.

http://motorbicycling.com/

Here are a couple places for kits.

someone offered the option of havin dad stay at their house during the week to save on gas.. but someone has to come home and take care of mom...

I'm just tired of people saying, Cut back on extra expenditures to save... if you've already been doing that for years... there isn't much to cut back on- then what do you do? Get another job?? Again, not feasible when you have to take care of someone else. For a lot of hard working Americans, the economy is really taking its toll.

end rant
Your story is what makes me pissed off. Some people, like your parents, ARE really trying, but you know damned well that if something like this happened most of the money would go to a bunch of lowlife dipshits who ARE NOT trying. It's like the two guys down the street from me who live on wellfare, yet own a house and each buy $15 worth of booze every day. The only way a system like this would ever work is if somebody kept tabs on exactly what these people were spending money on. Sorry to hear about your parents' situation.

And if you really want to have fun buy one of these kits your motorized mountain bike for winter riding in the snow. I bet this would be black with a 70cc 2 stroke on it on the trails.

you've inspired me. i'm doing that. I'm in the process of restoring my grandpa's 1951 Schwinn for that purpose.

Are you sure you want to do that, in 1951 Schwinn was made in the U.S. and we know how you feel about that.

So....lemme get this straight. Give out vouchers for free gas so half the country can rush to the pump in a big surge thus tically increasing demand and raising the price of gas.

Brilliant.

instead of focusing on free shit from a large government, why don't these elected idiots figure a way to simply lower the price. $4.09 for gallon of gas/crude at $90/barrel. hmm? should be under $3 a gallon right now. these losers over legislate then when there is a problem it's MORE FREE GOVERNMENT HANDOUTS. just what the lazy white trash and ghetto monkeys need. free gas.

That was cool, you answered your own question.

Do me a favor, raise your right arm straight up and then poke yourself just below your arm pit and say na na na na boo boo.

I've said this before, If we were sitting in the same room you would be laughing your ass off.

To much is lost online.
