    The ebay kits start at about 160 and go to about 200... I bought a used kit on ebay for 60 deliver. I was something called a bumble bee and I had to change the design a little for my use but nothing major and it works fine. I would keep an eye out there for some of the old kits that still run. Bike bug and some of those things are out there and still run they tell me.

    Electric drive you can build with a scooter rear end and scrap metal from around the shop.

    the secret to building your own kit is the secure motor mount all the rest is relatively easy. unless you want a fancy one that is.

    I have a Bumble Bike engine and mounts in fairly nice shape, the only thing missing are the controls(handles and cables). Has not been run in years, was cleaned, oiled and boxed for storage in my shop. Actually had very little use, as the bike it was on was junk, and I never installed it on a better one. $65+ Shipping. PM if interested.
