    Hello everyone!

    I'm a student here in Colorado and have decided to build a motored bike. I just bought a 5g 4 stroke kit from spooky cycles (who I have a sneaking suspicion is actually owned by bikeberry), and a Schwinn Clairmont cruiser.

    I am hoping the 7 gears can help me climb the one big hill on the way to class and still keep high enough speeds for when summer classes start in the town about 20 minutes away by car.

    Besides these two is there anything I am going to need to get on the road?

    Thanks, and glad to have found this forum.

    Welcome to the forum. You've come to the right place for answers. I'm a 2 stroke guy myself but there are many 4 stroke builders here who will speak up soon and help you along. There's also a 4 stroke section devoted entirely to the 4 stroke bike.
    Good luck and glad we have another Colorado builder among us.

    Spooky Tooth was bought by BikeBeery.

    The so called 5G gearbox in the kit is an inferior gearbox to a Grubee 4G.

    The pics on the Spooky Tooth / Bikeberry website still show the Grubee 4G
    gearbox that they used to sell.
    Very deceptive marketing, caveat emptor.
