    If I was paid $1.00 everytime some newbie here asked this, I'd be rich by now. So in all seriousness, it is a bad idea because the bike is not designed for an engine. So suck it up and pedal.

    While I agree with Kona, get in touch with Dave at Vienna Bike Shop, Vienna WV. He puts engines on everything, including barstools........

    You could tape some model rocket engines to the stays, that would help a little.

    Isn't pedaling the whole point to biking?!? Buy yourself a dirtbike if you want to ride off road on two wheels and an engine.

    $50.00 is not rich to me. Considering I make 4 times that amount a day. Not including the private parties I bartend. I do really good with the private parties, which allows me to work two days a week at the lbs, which enables me to be able to ride alot. If you are not willing to pedal a bike, this isn't for you.

    talking about your income is the mark of a very small man.

    Which I know, I usually won't go that far unless provoked. For the best of things this thread is closed.
