Default Re: New - Building a Motor - Bike some basic ?s

my advice is don't buy a cheap toy store bike like a huffy. you can find plenty of good old bikes on craigslist or ebay, swap meets and yard sales, that will outlast any 89.99 piece of crap from walmart.

if you want something non-traditional, you don't build a walmart bike with a china motor. it's fine for the first time builder with a limited budget, but it sounds like you have some bigger aspirations and higher expectations.

i'm not knocking the china 2 stroke, i've done many crazy things with them (and so have many other people here) but if you want something to impress the car show guys (and yourself) you gotta look outside the box (store.)
