I ride those mostly because they are more fun. Nonetheless for a first bike you can't beat the china bike. You will learn a heck of a lot bout motors lol.
Those are incredibly cheap! I would totally be willing to get into the 42cc class for less than $100 bucks! Is there a good starting point for learning how to build one? How fast is that 42cc engine capable of propelling a person. Are these used engine that you find on ebay or something and what brand are they?
Sorry for all the questions but that just sounds awesome!
