    First order was a nightmare. At that time they didn't have parts needed. Corspondence with them poor. Bad refund process. Did get everything set right.
    2nd order was way above average. Quick delivery,well packaged, good quality parts at a fair price. E-mails were answered quickly. Made a phone call to them and who ever I talked to seemed well informed and helpful.
    Would order again from gas-bike.

  4. i ordered my engine kit a 48cc dualstart starfire gt-2 grubee from gas bike and received it in 4-5days right to my door by fedex for $186. everything was included and in great shape. the engine started the very first time and everytime and is still running great today. i now have the kit on a second bike. i also ordered a new style carb from gasbike and it arrived fast and great condition and works perfect. so yes i am happy with there service and will order again from them.

    ordered a replacement clutch. They shipped it out very quick. :D Got it in two days. But, I was charged $12.00 shipping, and the clutch was stuffed in a standard FedEx box. No protection whatsoever. just bouncing around inside that FedEx box... :annoyed:

    GasBike Positive Feedback

    I've only ever ordered small parts from GasBike.net, but when I have I have been pleased with the results. Shipping times were almost up to a week and a half for small parts though, which bothered me. But, it's worth it for their selection - it is in the upper 80% of competitors, having most all standard replacement parts. Even though shipping took longer than it should have, it was worth it to know that I can keep coming back over a long period of time, and they'll always have whatever simple part I need all the time.

    Took me 2 months of persistent calls but finally someone decided it was easier to just pay me. :bowdown::evilgrin:

    Duct Tape, if you want parts fast go to Spookytooth there in Az I'm in NY and when I order on the phone 3 days later I get it. Sometimes 4 days most times 3 days there real fast.

    Every time I go to their website it's down, it's a major turn off.

    Gas Bike Ok, but

    I got a good deal from Gas Bike last year. It was such a good deal that I bought it just to have one for a spare. Turns out a year later I was glad I had it.

    The problem I had was that the chain had jammed and broken the rear of the engine around the drive cog. With the help of a Sick Bike Part adapter for an oversized seat tube I installed my new engine on my bike. I used the new carb and CDI with my old gas tank. then I promptly tried to get this thing going. No luck.

    I kept on replacing parts, carb, tank, magneto, spark plug, magnet to no avail I finally replaced the new CDI with one I had on my old kit and it took right off.

    The parts were of a higher quality than the kits I have had in the past but the CDI seems to have not been up to par.

    Its kind of hard for me to complain too badly because I got the kit for a song and now I know more about how these things work than I did before. I like the kit but, if I had a working CDI then it would have gone a lot easier for me.

    I have had several dealings with them, all have been good until this last one. My latest one will be my last. I ordered a carb and paid extra for 2 day postage. 3 emails and 1 phone call later (All unanswered) I received the part. TEN DAYS after I placed the order! Their customer service leaves a LOT to be desired.

    I wanted a 4GT kit with the 5/8" straight shaft engine. That is what they advertised selling. I bought it. They shipped the kit with the 1/2" long tapered shaft engine. Not what they advertised and not what I wanted.
    I was a sucker for the "Bait and switch" marketing scheme.
    After carefully reading their return policy it is not worth loosing even more $$$ to try to get it straightened out.
    Caveat Emptor!

    They are two blocks from my house. I have ordered from them in the past and asked for will-call without any issues. This past week I was in a bind trying to get a build together. I discovered that I didn't have a working fuel tank so I thought I could call them like before and pick one up so I could get on the road for work. Some high school drop out there said they don't do will-call anymore and that I had to wait for shipping. I asked for some grace here because I was in a bind but they were a no go. I live two blocks away. WTF.

    Gasbike.net and Kings are the web sites for Nationwide Access since ~2010, they are the official importers of motorized bicycle parts from China Gas, which represents the Yaun Dong engine factory.

    In short Nationwide is just box shippers for China MB volume cargo around the US for customers.

    For the most part people at Nationwide are just your typical Wallmart checkout person so don't expect detailed information about how to do something with your purchase these days, but if you watch you can some really good deals on quality.

    The thing is, with all of the web site install help and guys like me that don't need any help, I find the GT5 66cc engines kits to be top notch after 70+ builds with them and only 2 catastrophic failures since 2009 and both attributed to no oil in the gas.

    gasbike sells the 'box of parts' delivered for $175, just ordered a couple more yesterday, what I like is you order it as individual parts with 55% off every part.

    The cylinder, piston and head are separate as is the magneto so just a 'box of parts'.
    With it already apart you can see the quality of the parts, in other words I don't have to break out a Dremmel, it's ready to go and 99% start up first try.

    Ordered a 48cc Grubee Skyhawk from them around 4 years ago, along with several parts afterwards. GREAT communication and customer service. If not for the online salesman, my assembly would have been MUCH more difficult. My .02-Gearhead222
