Recently recieved my 79cc predator trike kit from Gasbike. All in all, its a decent value at $189, but get a 60 tooth sprocket (or bigger) right away.
I tried the provided 44 tooth on my 20 inch trailmate desoto, accelleration was non existent. When I stepped up to a 60 tooth, I still pedal some on takeoff (to save my clutch if nothing else), but it will actually rev out to a solid 35 mph-with the governor still installed!
Only other thing was I needed to get a shifter cable for a tandem bike to use as the throttle cable, stock one is too short for my rig. Keep a baby's medecine dropper or something similar to add a few drops of motor oil to your clutch bushing, both sides, before each ride and you will avoid any unwanted clutch damage.

IMG_20170528_194443.jpg this is the point that is at now I wish I still had the picture of when it was still mounted on the regular 20 inch Trailmate Desoto.
I pulled the back end of the DeSoto and mated it to this OCC Schwinn Chopper
