Id love to see a 4 stroke engine kit that was designed for a BICYCLE!
49cc, 79cc, 125cc ... Really dosent matter to me , as long as it was truly designed for a bicycle frame, and affordable.
A little V-twin would have me interested!

No trans here has to be all automatic, and believe a lot of other states also. Be nice if someone would come out with a small torq-converter to work on small engines, US made..........Curt

Im working on a few 2-speed designs. With off the shelf parts you can put one together for about $250. If you're serious about buying it I can make a thread with the parts list. Ones I'm working on will cost over $500. There's always the cvt you can buy but it has too many drawbacks for me to choose it over a single speed cent clutch. That's what I'd like to see, and I'm gonna make it happen. What are YOU making happen?

The 4 stroke engine design exists; making it cheaply enough to sell profitably is the problem. The dear old Ducati Cucciolo.

I third the gas tank vote. I talked to the local steel company about cutting out templates for me to weld up. I may still do a run of about 10 of them and see how they go.

I'd like if someone made a performance top end set that was direct bolt on like airsal offers for piaggio and such. One that lasts.
