Default Motorbicycling 101

Here's a short primer to the Chinese built in-frame bicycle motor kit.

50-70cc piston ported (old, old school) two stroke.
Dry plate clutch (like a car), single speed transmission.
1-3 claimed horsepower.
25-45 mph top speed. (not recommened for the faint of heart)
Can be operated comfortably from 10-25 mph continuously.
100-150+ mpg!
Can be mounted on a suitable bicycle in 4-12 hours, depending on how thorough you are.
Adds about 20 lbs. to the bike.

Anybody want to add anything before I lock and sticky this thread?
