    Zup guys, i just purchased a 80cc kit for my bike. Its a 2003 Trek 4500 Alpha mountain bike. Im not gonna ask a bunch of questions yet before I look around a little bit but I thought id say hey.

    Im interested in NC laws(helmet,lights,ect...) rear sproket upgrades, piston upgrades, 2-cycle gas? Mixed...like a weed eater?

    Can i use a MSD blaster coil for fire to my plug, what different types of spark plugs can i use? I plann to search but thought id throw this stuff out there.

    All my parts are ordered and im just waiting now.

    In route are

    80cc(67) Motor Kit
    Sick Bike amsoil filter
    Andy's 36T Super Sprocket

    Plan to replace plug with a NGK, and wire with a Msd piece left over from a recent car build.

    How do the Treks hold up and should i keep my quick releases on my wheels or not?

    So I decided to drop the Trek from the project and use this instead.

    Its a GT Timberline, chromoly Tri frame.... heavier than the Trek but the conversion will be alot simplier with this frame. Great 25 bux.... i really dont care for the solid fork up front though. I may try the Judy Rock Shox of the Trek, but i dont think the necks are the same diameter....

    What do you guys think?

    I think you made a good choice...that bike would work great as a MB (^)
