    hey y'all got me a new bike today
    i picked it because it's single speed and has nice crank set,
    I'm a little concerned that my bike is aluminum, hope doesn't cause problems down the road
    looking forward to powering it up, so many choices though,
    I'll probably get a Grubee 80, as I only have a couple hundred to spend
    the four stroke look like the way to go if i had double or more what i can spend,
    maybe someday..........

    open to feedback on great 80 cc deals, whats your favorite motor brand, front brake ideas,

    the Grubee 80cc china motor didn't work out....
    that rag joint is garbage. and the product riddled with low quality everything.
    and i stripped out the engine mount (mounting it on my old mb)
    got a Staton friction drive kit with Subaru 33.5.
    I wanted to modify the front mount to attempt to avoid frame damage
    I used a Schwinn seat post rack, I just cut the rack part off
    all mounted up just need a front brake

    stopping is as important as

    picture is on my other post
