If you use a new Staton with Subaru or Honda 50 engine, installation is less than two hours but cost is $499-$769, not including shipping.
Whatcha going do, climb hills or ride flat ground?
How fast ya wanna go, 20mph or 30mph?
Sorry for the delay in answering your post ... I thought I had replied already but I don't see it here in thread.
Mainly I just want to geezer-around my little town. Not much in the way of hills here and the roads are good two-lane blacktops. Top speed of 15-20 would be OK with me.
Actually I'm just about certain that I'll be going with a Stanton friction setup w/ 35 Robin/Subaru 4-stroke no matter which bike I end up with. I've only heard good things about this rig.
Thanks again for your input ... much appreciated.
