    Hello, my name is Jonathan. I am seriously considering buying this 49cc 4stroke engine kit from them on ebay.
    Is there anyone who has purchased this before, is it an ok motor? any advice would be grateful.

    I appreciate all the help thanks.

    Jim from livefast is a nice guy, I have done face-to-face business with him for about 3 yrs :)
    if the gearbox is like the 2 stroke rack mount one he has, the gears are made of questionable metal (teeth wear/break easily)

    I rode that very same bike, I was very impressed with that motor. I have pics of it somewhere. The only thing I did not like was the struts that help hold the motor. A little weak and the motor moves around a bit. But nothing that cannot be beefed up to eliminate that problem.

    It was pretty fast and had plenty of power.......
