Default Re: Need help with some direction.

Try a "pawn shop special" bike, or craigslist. Stick to mostly beach cruiser(maybe road bike) styles. And then get a motor from one of our vendors on either side. A 49cc will do fine, just save up for a bigger sprocket/adapter later on if you feel you need more torque. When looking for a bike just think of things like, is their enough room for an engine and tank, does it have decent brakes, etc. There is a engine template on zoombicycles that you can print out and take with you, to see if the engine fits. Also make sure that the rear is wide enough to fit in a chain on the left, at least 4in+. Good luck. Post picts of any bike you scope out and we'll give you the thumbs up. L8R.
