Default Re: I've been away from this for awhile, but now I'm back and want to build a bike


Good to be back.

I've been spending a lot of time looking into bikes, and I'm pretty sure I'm going to avoid something new in favor of something older and more robust. I used to have a Schwinn Corvette frame that I gave to a friend a few years back. I wish I still had it, but I want to find something similar.

Has anybody had any luck with the 97cc power plants from Surplus Center that are certified in Cali? They also have a 148cc Briggs and Stratton that could keep me in legal moped range and I could drive it with an M2 license.

97cc PowerPro

They sell the 148cc motor with and without a 6:1 reduction. I don't know much about the rest of the drive system yet, but it seems like it could work.

I'm kind of swinging in the dark, so any feedback would be appreciated. I'm still heavily in the research phase, and appreciate your input.
