    I have been looking at the Kits for a while...

    I have a donor bike in mind Just a walmart special all terrain model. Should have plenty for frame space.

    I have my mind made up on a 4 stroke kit. I was hoping for a honda engine, but most kits I seen do not use the honda. Guess the other common one must be decent I don't see a lot of complaints.
    I have seen chain and belt drive options.
    Eventually I would like to add the jackshaft/shift kit so I can **** the rear derailleur. Not sure if you are limited to chain drive.
    My only last item, I hate the gas tanks. Really don't like the motorcycle style tank. Rather not have something on the top bar..

    :)

    Consider a rack mount I use one. EZ Motorbikes has some very good mid frame 4 stroke kits. As for myself I use Staton Inc. I use a shiftkit and have the only motorized bicycle in the world that's shifts 5 gears automatically.

    I use an autoshift derailleur. I custom built my freewheel. The sprockets are 34, 28, 24, 20, 16.

    That bike was built by one of our member/sponsors. Norm, Venice Motorbikes, builds some nice rides. If you contact him he will tell you how to build a bike like the one in your picture. http://www.venicemotorbikes.com/

    Thanks Tom,

    Talked to Norm via, email great guy.. Fun thing would be trying to track down that bike, guess not made any more.. So the search begins. Started thinking if I want to build one of these I want to build something I will really like.. I can get a bare unpainted frame, but then the expense of powder coating it and taking down all the parts to build it out. But that might be an option.
    Should be a fun thing to tinker with!!!
