    Need help getting a good gear ratio

    I'm currently building a 125cc 4 speed manual motor onto a bicycle but I'm unsure what sprocket sizes I should chose. I want to have a decent amount of top speed (80kmh should be easy with a 4 speed transmission) but still have acceleration around the city. Any help is appreciated.
