    What am I going to need?

    Depends on what you need bud, I'm doing something similar and am using moped/ motorcycle 12v lights but the wiring for that kinda stuff isn't plug and play. You would need to do a bit of wiring.

    Electric generator

    Mhm, do you run the lights directly off of it or are you using the generator to charge a battery?

    Electric generator

    Nice job man, it actually looks like an old motorcycle engine with a generator on it. I've also seen people run it off the back wheel( running a small wheel on the sidewall of the tire) and also mounting it to the seat tube and using it as a tensioner for the drive chain. Both of these would...

    This is why people hate motor bicyclist's.

    It goes both ways though. Most people in cars don't see bicycles as vehicles. I've been yelled at many times to ride on the sidewalk. And I've been honked at on even more occasions for stopping at stop signs and almost being hit while crossing because people dont think they have to consider you...

    This is why people hate motor bicyclist's.

    Unfortunately, that rider probably is in the mentality that hes riding a normal bicycle. Hence why hes riding on the sidewalk( in that part of chicago that's classified as a public parkway and BICYCLES can legally ride on the side walk however hes on an ebike witch cant....) but yea not stopping...

    Running light wiring

    Hey guys, wiring questions are always fun, I'm trying to figure out how to do combination tail, signal, and running lights. I know I have to do both signal and brake lights on the signal wire but do I need to do a resistor on the running lights wire? Theres 3 wires, red(signal) brown( wiring...

    Wc-1 size?

    yea thought it wouldnt be easy, but im here for the challenge. Any tips for the mounts? also i was looking into the full kit but was also thinking about just parting out what i need like engine, exhaust, carb, clutch and just figuring out everything else as i go. Should i just go full kit?

    Wc-1 size?

    Hey guys just wandering about how big is a WC-1 engine compared to a normal HS 4 stroke. I have a GT-C frame and I know it can fit an HS but I've been looking into a whizzer kit and would like to know if there comparable in size or if the wc-1 is alot bigger.

    First time building 4 stroke 49cc any advise?

    So I can legally ride it around without being harassed by local police, also I want it as a peddle assist not as a full blown motorbike.

    First time building 4 stroke 49cc any advise?

    I would like to hear some advice on this aswell. The build Im doing currently is built around a 49cc stroke. From what I hear they have good Low end power and can run for longer because of the oil resivor. For upgrades I know there's not to much in the way of bolt ons just exhaust and tuning...
