I just wanted to check back in, I was around this site a few years ago and caught the bike bug, but got sidetracked building vintage motorbikes.
I've got several AZ plans and Will be starting a motorized build soon. If anyone has questions about registering these with motors gas or elec. in Ma I've navigated the DMV several times and been successful.

I know gas motors aren't too popular here but here are some pics of what I've been up too.

Hey buddy good to see you back. I am interested in high milage transportation.
I'd be interested in your builds. Take away the motor and its a "bike build" sure enough.
For me it's all about education. Your here to teach. I'm listening.

Thanks , your builds inspired me to go the motorbike route. I'm not sure if the Briggs panther with sidecar will get done before the next build starts, but I am thinking of a single speed warrior using a gear cluster tranny of your design I saw a few years ago and running the motor and pedals through it.

Just about finished with the bike below it's a 1947 Whizzer in a Schwinn Panther frame, I'm working on a set of leaf springer forks to finish it off. I've begun the parts gathering for my Warrior/Street Fox hybrid which I will start a thread when the building phase starts.
