Default Re: The Pocket Bike Engine and Your Opinion...

this is an interesting thread. i'll venture my two cents and say that part of the popularity of HTs is 1) the look - they look like a tiny motorcycle engine and not like re-purposed lawn equipment (like pull-starts, cooling shrouds and such), and 2) the lesser width compared to some of the other options. sounds like the pocketbike engines might be a bit wide for pedaling (as i found my Morini engine to be).

OTOH, the PB engines sound like thy're decently priced and possibly of a better quality/sophistication than the HTs. i look forward to hearing more about this option.
