    I have always liked the lack of traffic a bike offers and the ease of use of an engine, so putting the two together always seemed like a cool idea. After getting the cops called on me and a conversation between them and my mom, my go kart is out of service. I'm toying with ideas of building a BA trike w/ the 5hp motor that is just standing around now, bc i think its a little to big and bulky to balance on a bike. (Lotta "B" 's in that sentence) So basically I wanted to say hi and this looks like a really interesting site. Peace oot. :arrow:

    Welcome. 5 hp makes a bicycle a motorcycle in most places.

    HEy dude,

    Food for thought-

    before you build, read local laws- you may not get any further than the kart. 5/0 may may not like you having a moto on the streets under 16

    the 5 HP is too big for a starter. See if Mom or you can spring for a China 48 for a frame mount OR a weed wacker powerplant worked up to fit a bike rack.

    Keep it simple, and have fun
