    First make sure you know the laws in your area, nothing like spending cash to be told to park it forever.Second figure out what you want from it, fun--utility--$$savings or all the above.From all my lurking on this site I'd say go for reliability, in engine and drive system; so many get discouraged before they even get a taste of fun because they decided to cheap out and got what they paid for.I have a GEBE with a robin/subaru EH035, gone over 700 miles with NO problems, just the minor stuff vibrating loose and oil changing, many of those trips were 80 miles at a time.

    Here are important questions to consider when building or buying for yourself or others:

    1) What is the predominant riding terrain? (Level ground, hills, asphalt or dirt etc...)

    2) What type of physique does the primary rider have? (Large, small, short, tall or health issues etc...)

    3) What will the rider's local laws allow and require them to have? (Lookup and personally read these laws.)

    4) What kind of bike is being motorized? (Mountain, road, whizzeror recumbent etc...)

    5) What is the bike to be used for? (Shows, long trips, around town, off road or racing etc...)

    6) How much of a budget is to be used for the build or buy? (All at the start or as you can afford projects etc...)

    Seek the answers to these questions in order to get the most out of the bike you're building or buying. We're here to help with any questions you may have. The purpose of the questions to consider is not to overwhelm or confuse you. Rather help you focus in on what will work best for you and help you develop a building or buying philosophy. This site has lots of people who can help you but the only way they can is by asking questions. Any one of the questions to consider somebody here can help you with.

    A fool never learns from their mistakes.

    A smart person learns from their mistakes.

    A wise person learns from the mistakes of others.

    Good luck with your build or buy.
