    Howdy Rob, welcome. I had never heard the term "Downhill bike" so I googled it. Wow, big bucks but would make awesome MBs.

    Any way, great to meet you.

    Ive got a Skyhawk 48cc for 4 months now and find they are the most smoothest and reliable motors I have ever used and others swear by them too.

    nothing like a bit of engeneering. Looks good.
    always been hard mounting the engine in the new style downhill bikes.
    Well done
