    Kings, Gasbikes, and Zone 8 are all the same company....and they will NEVER answer phones nor emails...DON'T buy from these companies. best place to buy a 4 stroke kit is bicycle-engines.com (birddog dists.) I bought several kits from them and they seem to be a reputable comp.

    DO NOT, DO NOT, DO NOT buy what is being called the 5G, its actually a name given to the old Hoot gear box that is really horrible and cannot be made good...these so-called 5G are being sold in several places at deep discounts and customers are not being told what they really are...the 4Gkit is ok

    I already told you.......check out bicycle-engines.com (birddog dists.) they have the new version of the 4G on sale for less than $300.....The socalled 5G is not a new kit , it is simply a renamed Hoot gearbox so they can sell a real piece of crap...

    bicycle engines even has an ad on this page

    I just gave them a call at the phone number on the site and got an answer. Seems ok to me so far cuz i plan on getting a frame and motor kit from them. I dont know what your problem was in contacting them but they picked up for me and said they had the parts.

    You'll have a new source for newly designed quality 4-stroke kits this summer.
    I have spent a year working on making the venerable HS 142F 49cc 4-stroke a good alternative to a 2-stroke.

    For direct drives the new actual Grubee Skyhawk 10G's with my design changes will be available in the states through other distributers than gasbike/kings, China Gas won't sell to them anymore.

    I will have some direct drive kits but mostly my compact 'drop in' base with right side engine output, which is my baby ;-}

    [​IMG]

    Dual Bearing mounted clutch bell and 20T T-belt pulley.
    Dual Bearing concentric mounted 100T T-belt pulley on a freewheel bearing.
    Super long output shaft with 9T or 10T 410 chain sprocket.

    [​IMG]

    Adjustable carrier bearing on the compact 3-point base that includes a tensioner pulley on the base for direct connection a freewheel dual sprocket pedal system so both the pedals and the engine can use the gears without causing each other any drag.

    Just letting you guys that will pay for quality if you can get it know I am going to fill the nitch with the help of my forum based web site for tech support.
