A Facebook page would be the easy way to do it.

It was very easy to install and have only about 75 miles on it so far with Zero tire wear (still has the casting flash). I am impressed with the quality of the kit. I'd like to get a muffler to quiet the exhaust a bit. Yes I know, I chose the 2-stroke engine but I was afraid the Honda 4-stroke offered wouldn't be powerful enough. There is a .6 to .9 hp difference between the two depending on whose specs you read. I'm glad I opted for the more powerful engine because of the windy days we have here sometimes.
I always thought a Lawnboy 2-stroke would be a nice powerhead. Rope starting, good controllable carburator, indestructible, easy starting. About 6 HP. It could be mounted on a rear rack and rigged to swing into contact with the wheel with a trampoline spring or likesuch.
