    Im very excited for my next motor. I just wanted to share with you all that I have ordered fred's (cr machine) motor. 7.2cc crank balanced motor with compression release lever with the delorto sha carb is getting put on tomorrow when I go pick it up at the post office. Excited to try this motor out but its going to rain everyday till this weekend :( I dont know if anybody is using his motor. dance1



    7-22-2013 UPDATE:

    I was finally able to build the new bicycle with a new frame, forks, brake system and handle bars. I had 3 other spare bikes that I had laying around so I took off certain parts to build this bike except the frame and forks. Painted the frame flat black to include the rear wheel and changed the tires to road tires I had. I will def post up pics soon of the new bike. Today I will try to get the motor setup on the bike and hopefully to be riding again this week. Waited 3 weeks for this lol



    UPDATED bike on page 8

    bought it for $650 to include shipping. he has 2 more on ebay which one is a little more than 650 and another for around 550 ? i think . Will def post up my review about it once I get it installed. Wish I had better oil, but whatever is left in my 1 gallon canister I have to use. Next tank will have synthetic oil added. Still wondering if i should keep using a 32:1 ratio or switch to 25:1 ratio which is what he is using in his test bikes

    Sorry, but I have to say this. Crimeny, $650 for a worked over china girl! For $25 more, I can get FIVE whole kits! For another $125, I built a 98cc cruiser! with motorcycle forks and a Worksman front drum, no less. I'm not criticizing you for paying that price, dumpstercrusher. I understand that you want quality and I sincerely hope that you get it. I just cant believe that this is a motor only going for about what it cost me to build my first two bikes. For that money, I hope this motor lasts you 10 years no matter how hard you abuse it.

    lol its okay, I know other people would think this is stupid of me. So is buying a motor for $900 or close to that, but I do like the idea that the motor was taken apart and then put back together instead of just taking a motor you buy from a china factory and putting it on. My previous motor still crapped on me and had 120 miles on it. At least with this motor I know I'm getting what I paid for and coming from a car modification hobbist I guess, this money is pretty much nothing except maybe a new clutch for my car. Plus as a bargain, $650 for a pretty much built motor sounds soo much better than a $5,000-$6,000 built motor for my car. Keep on riding!r.ly.

    well thank you! i really wanted to buy the gt2 frame? (frame with gas tank inside) or find an actual steel frame and redo the whole bike and swap parts like tires, rims, handle bars and forks from my old mountain bike but I know that will be lots of money and also considering going with a hydraulic brake setup for the front. For now I jus want to put the motor on the bike, get a feel for it and hope nothing goes wrong before i start ordering a bunch of parts. Well so far im using the 44t rear sprocket but fred suggested i move to a 36t because his motors have good torque. I will judge that once i get it put on haha Only chamber I have is the stock one but i have a motevelo on the way. that chamber was bought before the motor and i really wish I could buy a different chamber but we will see how she does :)

    I just built the equivalent but with more upgrades for less than half of that . DAX balanced bottom $80 w/s&h, BGF jug&piston $35, FRED HEAD 6.0cc $85 , Arrow Reedblock $90 , DAX RT clone $30, Jet set 60s&70s Genuine Dellorto's $25 that cost me $315.00 a savings of over 50% and I did the milling and port&polish myself. I have better for less and I BUILT IT.

    Congrats to ur skills of saving money and building it urself. For me I dont have time to peice everything together and to port and polish my own so buying a setup fully built is easier.

    I installed the motor today and I took it out but had problems wit the 75mm jet so i switched to a 65mm with really good results. I need to order ccouple more jets because its just not quite there just yet, but i will say this, for all the people that have coaster brakes or any brake, the compression release lever is an excellent way to slow down the engine and even used as a kill switch. I think thats the best thing about this motor is that lever and of course the max cooling of the head. Still need more tuning and havent been able to ride that long since the rain, but im using this time to make adjustments to the tune and to other things that need to be tightened up.

    Dumpstercrusher, I don't think you are stupid at all. I think $650 is a crazy price for someone to be charging for a worked over china girl. But that doesn't make you stupid for paying it.You paid that price because you wanted a quality motor, and that's understandable. CRmachine isn't the only vendor with crazy prices, and people pay other vendors crazy prices too, because they want quality, and there is nothing wrong with that at all. I just wanted to clarify that I don't think you are stupid.

    I dont have the motor, but I do have a very good builder of china girl motors right down the street from me. He builds some fast bikes that win races.
