I've decided to get the Honda x 50 rather than wait for the next batch of grubees, but where can I buy a grubee mounting kit for the Honda?

Right now it seems you can't, at least not here in the states. The US importer of GRUBEE products is Birddog also known as bicycle-engines.com and they are out of stock. You might try to search out an overseas supplier that has them in stock, but then you will have to deal with currency exchange and high shipping costs. Or you could build your own alternative drive train and engine mount? The alternative drive train route can get expensive very quickly and may require some fabricating skills. But there are parts out there that can be pieced together to get you on the road.

Right, everyone has parts, but who has the grubee gearbox?

Anyone have one they want to sell?

I'm talking about avoiding the gearbox all together. Using a Jackshaft instead. I'm currently working on the setup shown below using Metric Timing Belts, but you could do something similar using chain or V-Belts, and save yourself all the problems that the various gearboxs and cheap chinese clutches are causing the owners of these chinese kits.

American ingenuity.

I love it ... I think.

Have you tested it?

Will you be selling them?

How much?

Was it your post saying your build was on the other forum? I didn't think there were issues with that here, but oh well, that's probably what happened. I think there would be plenty of interest if you posted the build here anyway :)
