    Has anyone had experience with the rear mount chain drive kit available on Ebay (yellow bike) ? How does it compare in performance and reliability to the Chinese mid-mount ?

    From the description "Honda DESIGNED engine" tells me it's not a Honda but some Chinese knock off.
    100 dollars for shipping and the general look of the item description tell me to stay away.

    He's charging at least 75 dollars over actual shipping.

    i am concerned with the weight balance with a bicycle motor mounted over the rear wheel. i like it much better set up on the triangle and i also use my rear rack to carry things and would loose the option

    I bought it....I'll let everybody knows how it turns out. I will be assembling it the first week in May when I visit my son.

    I also sold my Chinese motorized bike today. I finally got it running perfect and a guy gave me $450 for it so I took it. I have another kit ready to go on a new bike but can't start assembling it for a week.....I have grandson visiting so I have other priorities this week.

    Happy motoring...

    Sometimes being the guinea pig can be fun!

    Definitely keep us posted, maybe a small review?
