    If money was no object and you had to pick a kit on the market right now, what would you pick? Friction, Belt, Chain? I'm just curious.

    I would buy this bike from Big Boy Cycles and terrorize the drivers in OC.

    It does have pedals........

    you guys ain't thinking big enough...

    if money was no object, i'd build an american made, billet 50cc engine that would last as long as a honda, with hop up parts to make it go at least 70mph.

    and start up my own bike factory, build my own race track in orange county, manufacture my own tires...

    make bairdco a household name

    oh, and resurrect the dyna cycle factory (google it :) )

    If money was no object, I'd buy a Harley. But I'm a broke @$$ white boy, which is why I went with a DIY China Girl.

    I vote chain drive.

    I think the replies so far demonstrate that if money were no object most of us here wouldn't buy a 'kit'... But, what I can surmise from reading tons of threads and doing way too many web searches is that top-o-the-line kits come from:

    Arrow Motorized Cycles,

    Sportsman Flyer,

    Phantom Bikes,

    Any other companies that the more experienced think deserve a mention?

    It should be noted that Arrow is the only company out of these three (to my knowledge) that actually rebuilds china engines to make them faster.

    Sportsman makes a sweet frame specifically designed for the Morini S6 engine...

    And if money were no object I'd buy at least four bikes....

    Off to ride now!

    Did I miss something?

    I was thinking kit but you guys make a good point. Some of those guys selling full bikes are making some sweet stuff. I would have to go with that .

    Great thread Thxcuz.

    My short answer would be a Honda/4G Bicycle Engine Kit on a black, Felt Heritage.

    Long answer is a DIY bike jig, multi-speed, auto tranny and a CNC to make the engine....

    .wee.
