    Wheres a good place to buy? Bikeberry seems like its the only place that sounds halfway decent. Ebay obviously has the cheapest stuff but the lack of reviewing system there makes me iffy on stuff from them.

    So far these are the ones I've been looking at:

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/2-Stroke-49...Parts_Accessories&hash=item4d2eae838e&vxp=mtr

    Most of us will suggest that you pay a few dollars more and seek out a seller that gives good after-sale support. Many of the cheaper ebay sellers are just drop shippers that offer nothing in the way of help or assistance if you have issues after the sale.

    Stick with known, reputable vendors like those who advertise on this forum and you'll be better off. The slight difference in price isn't enough to go as cheap as you can.

    Good luck.

    Welcome to the forum,
    Tom has given some good advise.
    What are you going to motorize? You can use the google custom search near the top of the page to find info. on most things.
    When buying parts cheap isn't ussually the best way to go. Good luck with your build.

    I have a standard (26inch?) mountain bike. I still have to get measurements on it. At this point I'm thinking 4stroke.
