Default Help on kits

Hello hello.
I'm looking to upgrade my bike for easy transportation around town without having to buy a moped. Coming across an article in MAKE was a stroke of universal helpfulness.
Anyway, I want to buy a reliable kit, somewhere in the price range of less than $200, no more than $250. I need something relatively easy and straightforward. My first kit to look at was this one:
Included Items
Seemed good, would cost a little over $200. I wanted to know if there was something cheaper. I found these:
Silver Slant 80cc 2 Stroke Bicycle Motor - Silver Slant 80cc 2 Stroke Bicycle Engine Kit - 66cc Bicycle Engine Kit
GRUBEE SkyHawk GT5 66cc/80cc Slant Head Bike Motor Kit (Standard Finish)
I would probably go for the second one. It seemed better, but I don't know why.
I tried going through the forums to see if someone else had gone through this, gave up, and am posting this.
So, what I would like to know is this:
Are those kits good?
Which is better?
Is there somthing I missed?
Can someone help me?
For a first time motor bike creator, is there a better kit?
and what am I really getting into?
