    Hello from the deep south,

    Glad to find this forum.
    I am Milton from New Orleans, LA.
    I am getting a kit this next week, am so Glad to fund you guys.
    I don't want a big Scooter because I need to bring it inside, here it would get stole too quick.
    I think once I figure out how to install the kit on my bike, I wanna modify one, for a big trike..trk

    AT least I would have a way out of town for the next Hurricane, lol.

    Welcome to the forum. I spent a week in the big easy last month; on business of course. If you need to keep your motorbike indoors, you may want to consider electric power.

    I see the Gas Motors for around $120 and up, how much is a electric one?

    Do they move as fast? When I said inside I meant on a courtyard, whereas a big scooter would harder to get back here.

    A 36V 500w electric kit will not be impressive if you do not peddle along. if you do pedal along, you can achieve good speed and range.
    I am speaking of a 10 mile range with lead acid batteries. If you need a 20 mile range, you will need the more expensive LiPo batteries.
    We have a few ebike sub-forums on this site. If they are unable to answer your questions, there are some forum sites dedicated to ebikes (they will tell you a lot more than you want to know).
    Ebay is the cheapest. People have been happy with kits from these sites, though they cost a bit more:

    I usually shut off my fuel petcock a block or so from the barn and run most the gas out of the carb bowl... then I let the mab cool down outside before I bring it in.
    Not really any gas smell... that I can tell ! :)
