Default Re: Engine for this bike?

I have a $70 Huffy from Sears and it is a fine starting point. The Cranbrook will accept pretty much any HT (Happy Time) Chinese 2-stroke engine. Just remember your first build will take much longer than the 4 - 6 hours the advertisements say it will. You can also get 4-stroke kits if you prefer although they are a bit more expensive. Both paths have their own set of problems that you have to work through. Take your time and get each step right. Several of the vendors also have Installation instructions that will be much easier to understand than the "Chinglish" instructions that come with the engines. If you run into trouble search the forum and you will probably find an answer. If you don't then post a question and somebody will supply an answer. Good Luck!
If it can't be broken I'll find a way!


I'm not lost, I'm exploring!
