    I would get Spooky tooth listed over there>>>>>>>>>>>>
    or mybe thats dax. I would not recommend Live fat motors, they are okay, just that you can get better.
    DO NOT GET A OCCC CHOPPER UNLESS YPU WANT TO BY THE MOUNT AND SPROCKET ADAPTER

    here is a list:http://motorbicycling.com/f31/plug-play-bikes-2-stroke-china-9686.html

    I have gone thruh 5 bikes for one motor kit, all screwed up. Go to this list, you will get it right off the bat. (actully heres thats dax :))>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    Good luck and welcome

    746 watts make 1 HP. A gas motor @ 50cc is a little under 2.5 HP. So, A motor under 200 watts might make a small mouse go up to 3.4 miles an hour. It's got to be wrong. This hurts my brain, (c)

    Yep 200watts it is. Soon to be 250watts...........yay!

    200watts is the average of the average cyclist power output, i think at like 20 odd kmh. So they will allow that on top of what ever you can pedal.

    zbox.com.au is probably your best bet if you want to buy in australia, there located in bellingen n.s.w or ive heard about rock solid engines being excellent in s.a. i heard they disasemble and rebuild before shipping out to buyers, i hassled a copper the other day in relation to the n.s.w law, (im in byron bay) he said its all pretty grey what the law is in relation to petrol motors but as long as your riding a 49cc motor or less, you should be alright..unless you ride like a ####wit (his words not mine) .That may change though as the last post stated the law is supposedly soon changing to 250watts, the down side of that is theyll ban petrol all together....if your feeliing rich check out elationebikes.com.au theyve gotta cool electric system....peace
