    Re: Find a Dealer here

    I have gotten seven 80cc kit's from Kings Motor Bikes,Motorized Bicycle,Bicycle Engine Kit,Bicycle motors,Whizzer motorized bicycle. I've been very happy with all of them.

    They have all ran great and never had one problem with them. All kit's came complete and shipped in a timely manner. Of course when I got these kit's they were not in that much demand.
    I only had two tank's that the cap leaked but a O-ring solved that problem.
    I give them a 4.5 out of 5 stars

    I have also bought three or four 48cc kit's from http://www.spookytoothcycles.com/...The kit's where all complete. I don't see these motor's too often but as far as I know they are running great. I give them a 3.5 out of 5 stars, only because of the price.

    I have also sent many people for complete bike's to Spookytooth. I'll I see of them is a HUGE smile on thier face :D....that should say it all. For a complete bicycle, I'm rating them from others I have spoken too 5 out of 5 stars

    Re: Find a Dealer here

    I'll do a review for that'sdax products.....

    I have bought three of the in frame two stroke bicycle motor kits from that'sdax.

    All have been just what I expected, one is a bearing engine with updated throttle/kill switch, the other two were/are bushed engines from last year.

    Price was really low for the first two, still very good for the bearing engine.

    The first took a couple weeks to get to me, the second one came in a few days. The last one took about two weeks. I was not upset by the ship times on the two that took awhile since the ebay description said it would be a little while to get it.

    I have had only one small problem with one of the three kits, which was that it didn't come with a chain tensioner.....one e-mail and it was on the way, no questions asked. I got it in a week.

    The first engine I bought outlasted the bike it was mounted on and is going on it's second bike. The second one was sold after 500++ miles WITHOUT ANY RUNNING PROBLEMS- PERIOD. I'm not sure of it's ultimate fate, but maybe the gentleman who bought it will stop in or call this summer as I told him to let me know how it went after a year.

    The third engine is the bearing engine and I have yet to mount it...special projects always take more time.

    Having had A LOT of prior experience with Chinese product in the form of small gas scooters/mini cycles and road going scooters, I didn't expect too much, and for the price I paid I got way more than I paid for.

    Heck a couple rounds of golf will cost you more and so will that R/C helicopter you just wasted after less than an hour of flight.

    For a hobby the engine was definitely a best buy.
    For reliability, it's been dead reliable with only the specter of breakdown keeping me from doing something dumb like riding it on a real road trip to BFE. I have done several trouble free trips of well over 50 miles with no problems.

    I would recommend this type of engine for the hobbyist. I would recommend thatsdax.com to anyone who is interested in these type of kits. Good supply of parts cheap too!

    Some have said thatsdax.com kits are more costly. They are and they aren't. They don't over charge for shipping like a lot of sellers do....29.99 vs. 54.99 or more. Do the math. Also, if you have a problem with the engine once it's mounted up, are you gonna be happy you saved 20 or 30 bucks when you can't get any help or even a response from your seller?

    5 out of 5 stars.

    No, I don't have any affiliation with them and yes, I paid for all my own kits.......

    Re: Find a Dealer here

    That is where I bought my first motor. A 48cc roundhead. That motor still runs strong over 2000 miles later. All we had to do is change the sparkplug. Not one bolt has shook loose. I double nutted everything. No loctite.

    He also answers the phone and ships real fast. I have been buying from him for 4 months now and nothing but fast good service.

    I got jumped on the other forum for telling about the good service I have received from RevolutionCycles. He has good feedback on eBay. Better than most of the other eBay sellers. It appears hard to have good feedback selling these kits. Alot of people have problems and leave a negative.

    He helped me alot on my first build and his tips worked ! The bike is muched loved ! (c)

    Since I posted a bad review of Revolution, I guess I should have said why...

    I have never bought from Revolution...but I have spoken to some who have and alot is from word of mouth.

    One guy order a 70cc kit and recieved a 48cc

    One recieved a kit without a clutch in it, he got no response from revolution and had to buy a clutch from another dealer.

    Many have recieved incomplete kit's..no muffler..no spocket..no carb..and one guy never recieved his kit at all...never got a response from revoltion.

    I was asked to help out...When I finally got in contact with revolution after many week's of trying..He chewed me out for no reason, said that he does not help those who whine and they could go **** themself's. Then he went on this ramble rampage of how Grube has got it in for him...I have no ideal what he was talking about..

    This is why I gave a bad review to Revolution cycles....it is only my opinion

    I didn't see devrou on the list. He sells a fair # of engine kits on ebay.

    Here's where I got mine:

    80cc Motorized Bicycle Bike Motor Moped Kit Engine NR - eBay (item 150255746834 end time Jun-12-08 10:02:09 PDT)

    Yeah he says 80cc, his schnizzits are about the same as others - some stuff is the better stuff....but my carb needle had no taper, the clutch cable housing is too long for the cable, the upgraded fuel valve broke in two....etc all after warranty. Shows a chrome tank...it's black......better clutch handle and throttle. Does come with the tools (unlike I've heard from others).

    Hi,

    I have had two GEBE machines and but for the first one being stolen I have no complaints about either of them. On balance I think I actually prefer the Zenaoh engine - its a little more forgiving on starting and I think if anything a little stronger and gives more torque, although that could have been because it was on a MTB frame.

    I have nothing but praise for GEBE :). I am curious now as to getting hold of a Chengine so if anyone has one going second hand for fairly cheap (money much I dont have) then let me know :)

    i ordered on that same day and i was a little disappointed too, but last week we got tired of waiting and asked for the money back and Grady refunded to PayPal account darn near immediately, so i still would have confidence dealing with them.

    i would have preferred my engine kit delivered somewhere near that 10 business days or an explanation after a month of waiting, but again, i must say they took care of us right away when we got tired of waiting. i was impressed by that.

    Revolution cycles Took Great care of me, I was missing Chain and he sent one right out the ship time 8 days to door and that was due to USPS Screw up as was the chain. Everything came in good order the only thing is the clutch lever looks like poop i will order a better one b4 I mount motor. But everything else is great.

    Thanks for a great Board.

    * From member WALTER F. *

    Alright here goes>> XYZ Bikes <xyzbikes.com> located in California. This is where I bought my bike a chopper/cruiser for $155.00 FedEx to Connecticut was $104.00. Bike arrived on time, undamaged and was all there. What else can I say, I would buy from them again yes! In fact they got a "trike" I got my eye on.

    Zoombicycles <zoombicycles.com> This is where I bought my engine. They are RUIHONG ENTERPRISES LTD. located at 7678 Winston St. Burnaby, B>C> V5A2H4. Customer Service Phone !-877-565-6888. Engine arrived last Friday on time and undamaged. As near as I can tell it is all there and there are basic instructions with the kit in English. I have not run the engine yet or run into any problems for dealer to solve so I guess I'll give them a provisional OK for now, this will be an ongoing review.

    BicycleDesigner.com located in California (Redding I think) This is a site for stuff for the bike, mirrors,seats,lights, ect. I have ordered a few thing s and they should be here tommorrow. I'll keep you posted Walter F.

    I just got my engine kit from Dax. It was ordered 05/30 and it arrived 07/08. Some of the parts needed to be modified and one screw was stripped when it arrived. I have a terrible rattle in the exhaust. I sounds like a nut is loose inside of the muffler can. It makes it when the engine is off if I shake the bike. I don't know. The kill switch is a momentary "ON" switch. I'm not sure how to wire it to the blue wire to kill the motor.
    Overall, the kit was OK. All parts were there and the engine started on the second try. That says alot.

    Spooky Tooth Cycles:

    Ordered the fully assembled bicycle. Arrived as described and final assembly took all of about 30 minutes. Pedals, handlebars, front wheel, seat and tank. Packaging and shipping was very proffesional, no damage upon opening. 5 stars out of 5

    Customer service left a little to be desired. Very hard to get in contact with over the phone and several phonecalls/messages went unreturned. Seems e-mail is the best form of communication. Was told 3 weeks on delivery which included build time, recieved the bike 5 weeks later. 3 1/2 stars

    Pricing was very reasonable, bike + engine kit + labor to fully assemble and test. 5 stars

    Everything being said, I would definitely do business with them again. Other than the normal chain tensioning and tightening of bolts I have had zero problems with the bike over about 10 hours and 60 miles of ride time. After the 3rd week my excitement level was dropping after repeatedly not seeing a tracking number in my e-mail. However, I have to admit, that excitment returned and remains after finally getting it and taking my first ride. I've got 2 other people about 85% commited to ordering a bike of their own.

    I'd also like to commend Roland and his company for their effort getting motorbikes legalized in Tucson. He definitely does more than just make and sell motorized bicycles.

    Re: what do i look for in a bicycle engine kit

    Packeryman says hello. I am new at this bike game. I purchased a CH 80 from Chris Hill. He shipped the kit immediately. I followed assembly instructions on his site post and had it running in about 5hrs. I had a couple of questions and he responded right away. The engine runs great and this guy was a pleasure to do business with. It is very flat here on North Padre Island and I have had no way to measure the speed yet. It has a 44 tooth sprocket and seems to run faster than the quality of my brakes will allow for a safe ride. Thanks again Chris
