Hi, I am new to this and am thinking about building a bike. I am a big boy, 6'2" 265Lbs and would prefer a 4 stroke that is quiet. Any suggestions from which bike to buy and best kit would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

My neighbor installed an 80cc 2 stroke on to a Schwinn. He's 6'4'' and weighs in at about 270. He keeps up with me for the most part on flat. Inclines however, he needs to pedal a little.

Check out the "surpluscenter.com" site. They have some 4-stroke engines available and the Harbor Freight company has 196cc 4-stroke engines for $180.00 Good buys and well worth the investment. I am at 5'10" and 265lbs.
I run the fattest knobby tires on my 26" Murry mountain bike, which is a rigid frame too, and will be installing a Tecumseh on this build. I don't mind spending a few hundred bucks on an engine to haul my lard around. :cool:

we get many calls At blue-Collar asking if the motor kits will carry the Plus size.

So we got a buddy of mine weighing in @ 280 lbs then made a small clip and placed it on you tube. YouTube - Big Guy On A Moterized Bicycle

Sound is not the best.

cheers:)
