Just because his shop is called Ghetto Bikes, there is nothing ghetto about his parts especially if the top builders support him. If you get a chance, swing out to the next race on April 1st at Grange and you will see some nice builds.

Wow, seems like a double character assassination for no reason Tom. How about an apology?

Cool, you are in Fullerton, I am just a little south of you and Ghetto Bike
is up in West LA.

We are gonna do some OC rides this year and I highly recommend that
you come to the April 1st race if you can make it to meet most of the
people in this thread except for 2Door who is freezing back in Colorado
which makes him kind of grumpy.

I'm sure it's all fun and games. I would like to make it out there for April. But of course I wanna get my build done now and running nicely. Those brackets seem like sturdy mounts. Im gonna buy one hopefully have this thing done by end of month.. lol

Although the gb mounts look like a solution, I think it is retarded to spend $125 on an engine mount for a disposable engine. Those guys all know each other and try to help each other out, but the important thing for you is to keep the costs down while making it reliable, and not necessarily spending $125 on a machined mount. My opinion is that machining is NOT the answer to every little problem.

I built one two stroke bike under instruction from my buddy who built very many of them and had seen every issue with them. His method of mounting the engine was using a plate like that bing link above mounted to a 50cc 4-stroke engine mount. This proved to be a very durable mount with no welding required.

The gasbike mounts look like they might work but I don't know exactly how, but $40 is a heck of a lot better than $125. The machining quality does look nice tho.

I've worked in more machine shops than fingers on my hand, and I can tell you, there is always a cheaper way that works great. As far as machining goes that $125 mount doesn't look like something that is the highest techh of cnc machining. In fact all their stuff looks like it was made on manual machines. if it's cnc then it was a quick and dirty cheap setup with not much thought to making it pretty, or not much time spent in programming. All the parts are aluminum too, so it's not like the tooling cost is that big either. The mount blocks on my 212 build were manual machined by me, but it was free and only took me 30mins for a set. If I had to do it myself right now, without a machine shop, I would weld the heck out of it all. JMO.

Nice bike!

I agree with you. I couldn't fathom paying the $125 for those mounts. I need to keep my price lower, first time builder and all.

The original bikebrrry mount did not work. It's really a one size fit. So I'll have to sent that back because my motor wouldn't fit. Might try the CNC mounts to get the offset i want and keep that carburetor level. It's trial and error from here on out.
