    Hey All, how's it going?.

    Ok, first up I don't have a motored bike....yet. I only just last week started researching and my main purpose would be commuting. I work about 20kms (12.4 miles) away. I found this forum whilst looking for advice on which engine to get. I'm tossing up between the SKYHAWK GT5 GEN 3(badboy) 80cc Grubee for AUS$370 or the SkyStar F80 for AUS$250. Is anyone able to tell me the obvious differences between these two and what the reasons might be for the big price discrepancy?. They are both off ebay and the ads both contradict each other about the quality of the other one. I'm really looking forward to getting into this.

    Cheers and look forward to any replies.

    Hi again, there is also the ZBOX for AUS$275. All 3 of these models look pretty similar to me.
    Anyway, look forward to hearing from some of you and hope you can shed some light on these 3 for me.
