    Ordered a pull start 66cc kit from Bikeberry today for my first build. I am an ex-dirt track racer (Cars) and built and driven a few so I hope I can build this.:dunce:
    Lets see how it comes out.:cool:

    The motor kit just shipped today finally. Now I need to find some paint to match the tank and brackets to the bike. And I need some fenders and a rear rack.

    Check out the posts on fenders, I just took mine off after reading about some of the accidents people have had. I started with a Schwinn point beach looks the same but red and came with fenders and a rack. I had to make custom motor mounts for the front due to the size of the front tube. You may want to get a 1.5 inch car exhaust bracket to use for the front If you have the same size issue let me know it was a easy fix.

    can I widen it myself or do I need to buy one? I take the dog for runs everyday so I need to keep it on the road in pedal mode!
