Newbe that's looking for quick advice on possible build.
Hi, I'm in Arizona.
I'm trying to start a build. I am 215lbs. There are many places that I want to ride that have hills. I've been looking at several options. I have 3 bikes,
1 full suspension (too expensive for this build),
2 no suspension mountain bike,
3 1958 Panther (Springer front end with no break)
I am considering three options;
1 Staton friction with a GX35 Honda.
2 Staton friction with a Subaru.
3 Staton friction with a GXH50.
My current choice is the GXH50.
I am worried that this combination may not be compatible.
Will it overpower the roller?
Can I switch to a bigger roller due to the increased torque?
Is the GXH50 really 50cc or like most Hondas less than indicated, under the 49cc limit.
Will dust be a major problem with this larger engine?

Hi Dragon, I am in Phoenix (Sunnyslope).
I am not fan of any motor mounted over a wheel but certainly an option if there is no room for a motor in the cavity.
Then again for about the same $ you can mount an electric in there and it will even use your bike's chain drive and gears, I just built one, very cool.
Stop by my web site with forum and register up, it all depends on the bike and your budget but like here you can upload your bike pics and talk to us locals about it.
