hey guys i was wondering what kind of motorized bike i should get. thanks
Be more specific; There is no "best" motorbicycle, only one that generally fits your needs. Basically,
Are the things that determine what bike you should get.
what kind of bike should i use for the motor
You're best bet would be to get a bike that you like and figure out how to motorize it.
what kind of motor should i get?
Sigh. These aren't trivial questions. It really depends. I suggest browsing the forums a bit, and get a good feel of all your options.
you should get a metallic sea-green 1959 Huffy Eldorado with whitewall tires, chrome luggage rack, grips with tassles, and a squeezebulb horn.
you need to get a Grubee GT5 super rat motor, boost bottle, expansion chamber, mikuni carb, sprocket adapter, 39t sprocket, blue clutch and throttle cables, thumb throttle, grade 8 harware, pull start, jackshift kit, behind the seat gas tank made from a Hi-C can (make sure it's a Hi-C can) and a manic mechanic ashtray head.
And put some baseball cards in the spokes.
I would also recomend a flux capacitor so you can travel back in time. Also, I would not even set foot on a MB without welding a few 50 gallon barrels to the sides, just incase you drive into a lake.
PS, I own a bridge in china, if your interested
I like the baseball cards idea. I may have to try this mod...
I think what the folks here are trying to tell you is "YOU need to decide things for YOURSELF." If you would like some specifics; like what style/manufacturer of bike is best, you are going to get a lot of personal opinions. Same goes with the Motor kits. Look around the forum at some of the threads and you will find plenty of people ask the same questions you have asked. And the answer is the same every time. The bike and kit you purchase should fit your needs. Good luck in your build. If you run into problems we are here to help.
Welcome to the forum. Enjoy the ride.
Go on eBay, get a kit from BGF, or one of them.
Go to Wal*Mart, get a cruiser bicycle with a derailleur, like a Schwinn Landmark.
Put them together, and that will be your first motorized bicycle, a great learning experience.
