1. Sorry for any interruption today/tomorrow. We'll be upgrading the site software. The usability will be very similar, as it's just an upgraded version of the same software. It's a necessary upgrade for security purposes. The exact timing is a little uncertain as there are a few moving parts. The most likely time that we will be taking the site down will be Wed 6/3 around 9am EST. The upgrade should take 2-3 hours. Thanks for your patience through the update.

So this is my absolute first build and i literally have about the tightest budget you could have

    Thank you so much. I swear this forum has been a great help to me. I ordered a 49cc four stroke kit and it will be here in 8 days. Im so ready to get it put together

    Keep in mind that many of those 49cc 4-stroke kits already have wide cranks included in the kits!!
    You should wait to order the cranks because they might be included in yours. ;)

    This is true i think mine does aswell. So any recommendations on paint and primer that would be useful. I'm thinking on repainting parts on the bike to more closely resemble the blue and white chevy bel airs

    The bicycle in the picture already has a rear 'coaster' brake... Just buy a front brake & you'll be fine
