    Hi I just built my first motorized bike I feal like I am 10 again [2 weeks and 400 k]. I had a heart attack 5 years ago ant have not ridden much since then [except for on the stationary].now I am comuting 14 k a day to and from work with 2 big hills that I know that I would have never made without my little china girl [like the name heard it here]. I also find my self going for rides just for the **** of it. I am useing a power king 80 and am quite pleased with it.A little rubber for sound profing a few mods high energy ignition and plug[thanks to this page] high flow exaust and intake matched ports and a home made expantion chamber and muffler[pulls real good]. stuff learned from My Dad [God rest his soul] and a few years of raceing 2 stroke carts back in the late 60s. My old lady is a little jealous of the new girl in my life. I just can not wait to build my next!

    welcome to the site power rider. i am with you these bicycle motors are the fountain of youth. would love to see pictures of the modifications you made. it nice you had some experience with the motors before you built yours. my mom and dad did not allow mini bikes, go carts or any of those things when we were kids. but i am learning and mostly from the great people here on the site. glad to have you with us

    Tell us more! What sound proofing?

    What high energy ignition?

    I agree with all the rest as well - makes a HUGE difference.

    And all this in two weeks - I am impressed big time. Welcome neighbor!(^)

    Power Rider, you mentioned that you have a new "Power King" kit. I'm looking at building a second bike and want to order an engine. I wondered about the quality of the new comIbined clutch/brake he puts which his kit? Is it metal, does it lock and is it easy to use? Is the chain tensioner ball bearing? How do you like the throttle? I send him those same questions and he seem to avoid some of them. I get the feeling the dealers sell the same engine but the kit parts may be different in function and quality.

    Hi all I dont have a digital so I had my daughter inlaw snap a few shots on the week end and am waiting for her to email them to me as soon as I get them I will try to post them here.

    Pablo just a ngk plug and 7mm copper core plug lead and a nice water proof ngk resister plug boot.sound proofing was just some thick rubber stuck to the clutch cover with some double sided foam tape. that got rid of that ringing noise and a lot of gear noise. I also put some 1 inch strips cut from a large O ring of rubber between every second cooling fin like my old dirt bikes had.

    Gronkster I got the PK80 stelth edition powder coated black looks nice it did not come with the dual break leaver. my bike has the rapidfire shifters with brakes attatched so this would not have worked for me. the dual pull looks good to me and thats what I am useing on my next build. the ideler has no bearings kinda sucks showing some ware all ready.

    oh ya put another 150 on her this weekend I think shes broken in now pulled those hills real good on the way to and from work today.

    Hi Power Ryder, I live in Pitt Meadows, and just purchased and installed a Robins-Subaru EH035 engine on my mountain bike. It is a 4-stroke friction drive kit and I just love it. You're right... feel like a kid again, and I'm 63 years old. We should get together sometime and do a ride together. In fact, I would like to form a club for motorized bicycle owners in the Fraser Valley and we could organize a monthly ride or whatever. A photo of my engine is attached here.
