Default Custom lettering and lining / Engine choice ?

Hello everyone. I purchased a really nice frame/tank/mock oil tank set on ebay and am about to attempt my first board track build. I'm looking for member opinions on engine choices. There are MANY to choose from,and I have no idea of the quality of any of them. Pricing seems to be all over the place too. I'm leaning towards a 4 stroke for ease of operation,but I'm wondering if they make less power, and also,can you still pedal the thing with wider cranks and a smaller sprocket ? Two choices currently on the table are the HS 49cc kit,or the 2 stroke ported offering from Motovelo. But again,everyone claims they have the best product available,so I just don't know. Any help or opinions would be greatly appreciated. I'd also like to invite members (in the Chicagoland area and anywhere else ) to take advantage of my 35yrs of pinstriping and lettering experience. I have done a great deal of restoration and gold leaf work,along with custom pinstriping,airbrush art,etc. Samples of my work can be viewed at, or on the "Ace Studios" gallery pages. Feel free to contact me anytime with any questions you may have.
