Re: new to motor bikes
I too am from South Carolina but live in Tennessee now. Before you buy any kit you should read SC moped laws. 50 cc, automatic transmission and no shifting gears by the operator after the primary drive is engaged. Just trying to look out for a home boy. If you get a Shimano Nexus 3 speed hub it can be used with a Kilduff autoshifter.
It depends on where you live in SC, you may not have any problems. But if you want your bike to be legal it must comply with SC moped laws. A multi geared bike must do it automatically to be legal in SC.
