Default Toss up honda 4 Stroke or mitsubishi 2 Stroke

Heres what I am looking @ NuVinci Honda GXH50 49.3cc 2.10 hp Four Cycle 350% Engine and Pedal shifting kit. for $1059 or the NuVinci Mitsubishi 43cc Engine and 350% Pedal shifting kit 2 cycle for $899.00. They are almost the same as far as horspower goes. I want to do a geared bike and this kit seems to have everything that I have been looking at in it. I cant fit a motor in the frame of the bike I want to build. Bike does have nice disks and a nice front shock. I wanted to just do the 80cc two stroke with sick bike parts shifter kit but they dont fit..
Any Input people...
Thanks
Justin

geez for that kind of cash i would just go purchase a real scooter and have less hassles to worry about like registrations and insurance. Anyone putting more than 400 bucks into these motors and bikes is kinda wasting money that could be spent on way better equipment .
Just my opinion ................

I had written this on http://motorbicycling.com/f14/need-a...-two-7509.html but some how disappeared.

Howdy Troy, welcome. Man! both are awesome choices. I have a Honda with the Grubee GB and can't say enough good about the engine. Really, smooth and lots of power. I have no experience with the Mitsubishi.

I really want that GB!

(from their web page)
"Our 18.75 to 1 gear box has a Life Time Warranty on the Gears. If any gear fails EVER we will replace it at no charge. We have many years of our gear box in use and know they are by far the BEST you can buy. Our gear box is by far the very best quality and very, very Quiet. We have current customers who have more than 60,000 + miles on our gear boxes and they are still running strong. Our gear box will NEVER need replaced and it's made to last a Life Time and them some. Made in the USA. We have been building our highest quality gear and chain drive kits since 1984."

Well I posted a lot and was of lil or no help, lol

Anyway, welcome and keep us posted on what you decide and please post a review.

yea but Dan,

sure that motor and gear box are prolly top of the line as far as quality goes, But why pay that kind of cash for something as simple as adding a motor to a bicycle. It just does not make financial sense to be honest. Im not bashing a person for wanting the very best , but motors and bicycles are defiantly for people strapped for cash, and or who just want cheap entertainment such as myself and dont want to spend a bundle on them.

If I spent as much as this engine cost on a bike motor my wife would just laugh at me and say " you should have gotten a motorcycle or descent scooter for that money". So would my friends ya know.

but yea thats my 2 cents , just go with a cheap china girl and strap it to your free 10 speed and be happy you got it all done for under 150 bucks

well if you really want to get one of those high price engines get the smaller one,the big one is bigger than a 20" tv.or you could go with a 4-stroke from gasbike.net for $250.
your other option is a 48cc 2-stroke in frame with a shifter kit.

There are many using the GHX50, it is a very popular motor to use to motorize a bicycle. it weighs only 12 pounds, some use it to mount center frame and some as a rack mount.

13"tall and a little over 10" wide
