Hello,

I recently got the 49cc HuaSheng 4G T-belt drive kit from Bicycle-Engines.com and am looking for a good beach cruiser style bike to mount it on. As I don't have access to a full-on machine shop I'm looking for a bike that the kit will essentially fit onto right out of the box (i.e. without fabricating special motor mounts, welding, etc.).

Can anyone recommend a bike they have successfully used with this kit without having to perform significant modifications to the kits components? I know the recommendation is generally to shop around for used bikes but in my area there just aren't that many up on craigslist and the local used bike shop is grossly overpriced (yet somehow incredibly popular because its kind of like a town icon).

I'm looking to be in the $200 range, so far ones I've been considering are the:

Has anyone mounted the 49CC 4G kit onto these? Are they good bikes for an MB in general?

Thanks for any help!

Welcome to the forum deuskc.

Wish I had a answer for you but I don't know of any bike that the kit will just bolt onto. I'll leave that up to the more experienced 4-stroke builders.

Welcome

The Huffy Cranbrook is one of the most popular to motorized. Avoid the versions that have the welded on rear rack.

This would save you $130:

Not 100% sure on the fit for your motor:

Search for:
"New SBP 4 stroke shift kit on old Huffy Cranbrook"

Not my MAB.

Best of luck

I recommend searching Craigslist for a old American made Schwinn. (pre- 1982)

They're plentiful, low priced, very strong & very cool. (^)
