    Hey guys...

    My car recently completely died, and so I want to get a motor to put on my Trek 800. I was hoping I could get some advice!

    I have been looking at rear friction drives... as they seem easier to mount and maintain. But I'm not sure. I was thinking about the DAX GT50R 4.2HP. Though I don't have a ton of money and woudln't mind finding a cheaper one. I just don't want to have to adjust my frame.

    Do you know of any engine kits that have everything included? So I don't have to buy more parts?

    Just wondering... though I will continue searching after I post this. I am very excited! I will be riding my bike on hills to get to and from my school which is 6 miles away from my home.

    Nice to meet you all.
