    I own a beach cruiser and would want an engine for it in the frame.
    Fast and reliable.
    What would be best?

    EZ Motorikes has a really good kit.

    Welcome to the forum. Seems like the Russian "D" series motors would work well if you can find one in Ploand. Beach cruiser frames have plenty of room for mounting a 66cc 2 stroke or 49cc HS four stroke. Either should work well for you.

    If that engine runs as nice as it looks you're going to have a nice bike.

    this type of motor is the cheapest POS made you can buy
    You would be much better off building a small 4stroke powered Bike from what is available to you locally

    Why is a 4 stroke better?

    To me, the four stroke is better if you ride every day, because you don't need to mix petro and oil. If you only ride a few days a week, mixing gas and oil is not as much of a hassle and the cheaper 2 stroke will work fine.

    What about performance?
    I dont ride every day, but want it to be reliable and fast.
    The 4 strokes are not that more expensive than the 2 stroke

    I'm currently using a Robin Sabaru EHO 35. I change my oil every 50 hours and clean the air filter ever 10 hours. The engine has over 5000 miles on it and still cranks by the third pull of the cord at the most. It has never broken down on me.

    I'm 6'2" and weigh 250 lbs. The bike weigh 87 lbs. I'm able to do 30 mph on level ground and at least 8 mph up 25% grade hills. It gets 200 mpg.

    So depending on weight ( yours/bike) and terrain will determine what kind of drive reduction you'll need and what performance you'll get. Some other good 4 strokes are Honda's and Huasheng's.
