    There is information on every aspect of this hobby available if you use the search feature at the top of the page. As far as your question, "any suggestions" that is too vague for an answer. Take the time to do some reading and you'll probably get all the 'suggestions' and answers you want.
    Specific questions about building a motorized bicycle will be addressed but that will come after you start a project, or at least when you decide on a bike and engine kit.
    Good luck.

    What kinda bikes do you like? What will you use your motor assisted bicycle for? Cruise around for fun? commute to work? Building one just to do it?

    Interested in a 2-stroke or 4-stroke? Center frame mount or rear mount?

    I started off motorizing cruisers but have switched to Mt Bikes. I use my MAB's to commute and running errands, and just to ride for fun.
