the first build i ever did i bought the 50cc.it was cool and plenty of power until i built a buddy a bike and he ordered the 80cc.i would have to pedal up hills as he passed me without any help.thats when i sold my 50 and ordered the 80. i say go with the 80cc.if you buy the 50 you will wish you had an 80. hope this helps..rd.

The main differences are that the larger engine has more torque and will pull better. However in many localities the 48 cc is legal while the "80" cc isn't. Most people count on the fact that the cops can't tell the difference. I suspect that the law won't stay stupid forever so I run the 48 cc just in case. It is fast enough for me anyway..trk
