I recently discovered the motorbikes when looking for gas saving alternatives
I drove a turbo car daily and you can imagine the mpg figures when you floor it...
I found the 48 cc engine kit and to make the story short, I ended buying the engine w/o a suitable bike...
I bought a used mountain bike for less than 30 dollars and got the engine installed, when trying it ride was harsh and riding position uncomfortable
So I bought double wall rims and cruiser type tires, front telescopic fork, front disk brake and aluminum hubs
And a helmet
Now I am using it to go to work
Traffic is not a stress factor anymore
Fuel economy is great
I highly recommend it
