    SMALL FRAME!!! I've already bought the thing! 1st BUILD HELP :(

I walked into a well known local bike shop and fell in love with one recommended by the owner - A Python Quantom 8000 Men's hybrid bike. I fell in love and purchased on...

    212cc Predator Experiment - Performance Build

    So I'm thinking about building up a 212cc predator engine with the goal of getting as much power as possible on a $1,000 budget, not including the stock engine or a bike to put it on, as I have both of those already. The end goal would be to race it in the unlimited class at one of the SoCal MB...

    Necro's 4 speed 125cc Lifan Build Thread

    So I decided to go ahead with the 125cc lifan build. Engine and a few other parts arrived today, holy crap the engine is massive! Micargi puma arrives tomorrow. Then I can start figuring out how to mount the engine. Going to gear it for a top speed of just over 60 mph at 9500 rpm in 4th gear...

    2 speed 79cc predator build

    After building a few 79cc predator bikes for friends of mine and having them turn out far better than the first one I built for myself, I want to have the best bike again, so I'm starting a new build on an old trek 820 with a 21" frame that I got off craigslist for $150. I figure I'll keep my...

    Harbor Freight 212cc on Motoped Cruzer?

    Hello there guys! I was wondering if such a thing is even feasible? Thinking about buying the 212 death row 4 stroker and putting it on the Motoped Cruzer as a custom build pretty soon. However, my brother explained that such an engine would simply be too big? What do you all think?

    NEW... a journey recounted in paragraphs!

    Hopefully added picturetickled my thigh and started to burn... It was money and it was burning a hole in my pocket! I decided to start with a Huffy Panama Jack, for $170 it was kinda steep but the extendable rear rack is welded to the frame. It is true that Huffy is just a shadow of its...

    Different cylinders

    Hi, first post I have a 48cc engine kit that needs a new top end but the cylinder fins on this engine are round and the only top end I could find on ebay has square shaped cylinder fins. Will it still fit? I tried searching on the forums but I didn't find much. Thx

    Summer Job Build Thread

    Hello everyone! This summer I have planned to build and sell motorbikes for some easy cash.

I really don't...

    New To Engines, and Bikes -- Planning a Build

    Hello everyone, A friend recently showed me some "Derringer" bikes -- and from the sounds of it, a moped/motorized bike is what I need. Currently my vehicle (a 1988 Cadillac) gets around 15MPG. As a college student, driving around the campus end of town gets costly, fast. Because of that...
