So I'm about to build a new bike. I did build a china girl kit bike as you may or may not remember, but now I want something more reliable.
I want to go with a predator, since I have experience with these engines from building go karts. I have a lot of experience with the 212, but I've never touched a 79cc. Sounds like weak crap for a go kart, but for a bicycle it seems like plenty.
I already have a 212cc that I got from Necromancer. I'm in the middle of taking out the clip that holds the governor on and it's droving me nuts, but what the heck. I'll get it out.
The next bike that I want to build will be an enduro-type thing. I have a schwinn sierra frame (Thanks again Necromancer) that I'm planning to put a crf50 seat, plastics, and tank on. No rear suspension, mountain bike front fork, and beefed up components in general. Should be fun to jump and do some light off roading with.
I'm scared of a 212 on a bicycle though. I keep asking myself, Is this thing too heavy? To powerful? To hard to pass by the cops?
Should I just get a 79cc?
I'd appreciate any opinions. Thank you
