    Hello all I am very new to this site and the world of Motor bicyles. I love it!

    I just test rode a 2-stroke cruiser yesterday. I like it, but I think I'd like to build a 4-stroke mountain bike setup.

    Can anyone please tell me what requiremnets I should look for to determine which mountain bike to purchase(fitting), Also Where I can find a great quality 4-stroke engine. Thanks so much, trying to build a great bike. Any help is appreciated.

    What is your budget?

    A 2 stroke kit will cost you $200 or less but a 4 stroke kit
    will be $400 to over $600.

    The 4 strokes need more room in the frame too or would
    you consider a rack mounted engine?

    2 strokes are narrower too if you go with an in frame engine.
