Default Re: OK very overwhelming, quick question ....

I love my little 2 strokers. They do everything I ask of them with little to no complaint. Like biknut, the only maintenance I do is periodic lubrication of the gears and chain, check the torque of critical fasteners and add fuel. No valves to adjust, no oil changes, just pedal a couple of feet and they start and run. I've never paid more than $150 for a kit and have never had a hint of a catasrtophic failure. My bikes are not my main means of transportation but are built and meant for fun and lazy cruising. I can run 30mph all day, burn little fuel and they're quiet enough that I'm not bothering anyone. What more could anyone ask?

I am currently mounting a Sachs 50 cc engine on a Huffey frame. The engine includes an Auto drive ( no clutch required), and has an output sprocket the same as the China engines. This engine has been around for a long time and is a proven reliable 2 cycle. The hardest part will be making the mounts and making sure everything lines up. I paid 100.00 for the engine used and in like new.
