Default Re: Just got on

Cool thanks. I am a bit hefty myself, 230 lbs. So I think I will go '80'cc. Maybe go with a Boost bottle later on when I want more. Im not hearing anything back from the guy with the free mtb frame, might just go with a beach cruiser despite what I posted earlier. Simple, with a back pedal brake. Will probably end up adding on a front cable brake too. Flat black everthing, right down to the wheels. I am kinda hesitant to paint the engine though, might make dissasembly harder.

I would go with 67cc.

Here's the deal....I think in some ways out of the box the 49cc runs better than the 67cc. They are both junky out of the box, so why the difference? The only reason is that the carb, manifold, exhaust are the same for both therefore the 49cc can breath better and rev better. But the larger engine has more potential. I discovered that potential by simply porting the engine....opening up and manifolds, getting an expansion pipe.....the bike will now do 30 mph at 1/2 throttle.
