    Hi! My name is Bill and I am new to this forum, and motor bicycling,
    I have a Ross "Gran Tourist" that I am putting a RAW 50cc motor kit on. It has a Shimano 3-speed hub, which is too large for the stock rear sprocket that came with the kit. I can modify the sprocket that came with the kit, but since this is a 27" bike, I would like more teeth on the sprocket.
    I checked out Kings Sales & Service but there is no way to order there. I went to Ebay (as suggested on the website) and just plain couldn't find them. Am I doing something wrong?laff
    Any help appreciated.. Bill KU4QB

    I think you just have to send him a message and he will get back to you.

    I didn't post that message about spam but it showed up under my name. What's going on? Moderators?

    I am sorry about that, you need to become a active member before you can leave any links. That is to help the forum from spam.

    I am sending you a PM

    Thanks for the replies, guys!
    Andy cleared up the "spam" confusion. I'll try an email to King's tomorrow.
    Does anyone else offer sprockets for these kits? It always worries me a bit when a seller makes things complicated...

    No problem

    Have you looked into the shifter kit? It will eliminate the need to mount a rear sprocket.

    I looked at that and I really like the idea but it would double the cost of this build. Don't think it would qualify as a moped here in NC either.
    So maybe I'll try it on my next bike. ;-}

    i am thinking about a rear shift kit for the left hand sprocket usimg 2 or 3 gears to think abot getting speed. 50 tooth 44 tooth 36 tooth maybee even a 28 tooth, a 4 sprocket desing using a rear derailer i have been drinking but the concept works.
