quote "if I purchase a engine that is a 50 cc will I go 40 miles per hour?"

Depends on the engine. Dax sells a 48cc 2 stroke that will probably get you 40 but most chinese engines wont.

Quote"is it possible to ride 10 miles without problems?"

Again depends on your bike and engine. You can spend the money and build a motorized bicycle that will most likely carry you thousands of miles without too many problems or you can go the cheapest rout and take your chances.

To paraphrase an old hot rodders saying, dependability and speed cost money, how fast and dependable do you want to go?
All times wasted wots not spent ridin. Get a bicycle. You will not regret it. If you live. Mark Twain
