    Two quick questions; I just rolled home a free Huffy CB. I wold like to use a Grubee Skyhawk motor but I see a disclaimer that they will not sell in Calif. The other choice is the Stinger SD motor that will sell in Calif. Can I use a gas motor in Calif I have done it before. Second question is If I can get a motor is there a disk brake front brake available that will fit to the Huff wheel? In my last build I did use the Stinger and am willing to use it again I am just asking about the Grubee.

    I would go with the Stinger, since they sell to California. A lot of folks use the 2 stroke engines in Cali, some register, some dont. I dont live in Cali, so I dont know how much trouble the cops will give you. As far as a disc brake, you can buy a fork with disc brake mounts and a 1" steerer tube, or you can buy the springer fork, adapter, and complete disc brake set from Venice Motor Bikes for about $200. Not a bad price if you ask me. I went with a drum up front on my Cranbrook.

    Stingers are not very good. It would be better to save up and buy a Huasheng 4 stroke kit, the 4 stroke kits will ship to California.

    I got my Grubee here in Cali shipped to me a couple months ago from PistonBikes.com, maybe if you tell them it is only for racing an offroad purposes they may send you one.

    The Huff cleaned up pretty well it did look bad even for a free bike. I went ahead and ordered the Stinger motor
