Default Re: rear or front mounted engine kits not for me

Thanks for bringing up the other point about having to lift your leg real high. I hadn't thought of that one. Any suggestions where I could find an in-frame kit with a 4 stroke, 35cc more or less, 1.5HP max, American or Japanese made engine? Thanks.
The old Whizzer adds say "ride one and you'll buy one". I suggest finding motorbikers in your area and begging a test ride. Maybe going to a meet and checking all the different assemblies.
