Hello, I just joined. I couldn't find anyone mentioning severe vibration in the forum. I've got a chinese "80" cc engine on an old Giant mtn bike. My brother has the identical motor on an old Schwinn mtn bike. They both produce hand (and crotch) numbing vibration between 15- 22 mph. This vib. goes away at higher speeds. At lower speeds it's still there but not as intense. Any ideas? Thanks, Joe.

nevermind, I just found a couple of relevant threads.

Thanks for the welcome. I intend to post some pictures of my bikes, including the infamous, belt-drive "lawnboycycle". But I don't see where to add the attachments. Thanks, Joe.

A lot of these engines have a vibration area around the lower to middle rpm. It gets better with miles (like 3-400) Some are worse than others.
