Default Re: Hello everyone

Welcome to the forum.
Review the legal forum before buying. Police in some TX communities are tolerant of gas motor assisted bikes while others (like college campuses) will bust you (electric only allowed).
These kits install most easily on a steel framed cruiser or mountain bike.
Factory muffler is plenty quiet for use in a neighborhood. Further reduce noise by jamming material between cooling fins (many posts on this forum about it).
Some pack the factory muffler with some fiberglass fabric.
Better to get the motor kit installed and broken in before transforming it to a speeda bike. Get comfortable with the care and feeding of the china girl motor before customization. Cheers
