Default Re: Engine and Bike Suggestions

Listen to what bseelbach has just told you. He speaks the truth. One of the most important things to look for before making a decision on which motor kit to purchase is dealer reputation, after sale support and warranty. Many of the members here have been burned by making their purchase from low priced ebay sellers who seem to disappear or become unreachable after the sale. If you check the dealers that advertise here you'll be seeing reputable sellers with good customer support. As for the power differences between the engines they are negligible. The difference in the displacement is not really enough to make a world of difference in power. Some claim that the 80cc, actually more like 67cc has more hill climbing ability over the slightly smaller motor. That is probably true but the fact is you might not be able to tell the difference. As for a bike, check your local GoodWill stores and Thrift, (second hand) stores. There are some great deals to be had there for a good foundation for your first project. Keep us posted on your build and we're here if you have more questions.
