    CS company outfits bikes with motors

    Eagle Staff Writer

    Gaijin Motorbikes of College Station sells and installs 38-cubic-centimeter gasoline-powered bicycle motors that require neither a motorcycle driver's license nor registration. (Bikes equipped with motors larger than 40 cubic centimeters require a motorcycle driver's license and registration.)

    The year-old company offers a kit for $200 or will install the motor on a customer's bike for $240. Gaijin also sells a complete motorized bike for $310 to $370, depending on the bicycle model.

    Gaijin installer Justin Stancil has outfitted 35 bicycles with the motor during the past year and personally uses a motor bike to deliver food for Potato Shack.

    "The bikes do 30 miles per hour and get from 160 to 180 miles per gallon," Stancil said. "I have more than 5,000 miles on my bike."

    Stancil works out of his home and asks that anyone interested in learning more or having a motor installed on a bicycle make an appointment by calling 422-8338.

    Congrats on the article. I would buy from you if you are located in Canada.
  13. You know how the 80cc is actually a 68cc? Well then the 50cc is actually a 38cc!
    Yes. In Texas,that is the true displacement. Real displacement is 22cc less than suggested cc.

    I can just visualize a Traffic Court hearing, you drop an engine block on the defense table, along with an assortment of measuring devices (clank drops the toolbag, pull out micrometer, compass, protractor, depth finder, and some other thing you just make up), then hand it all to the assistant D.A. and say

    "Measure it yourself"....."they are lying on the label" "inflating the cc's."

    Case dismissed.
