    Hey Guys,

    Been awhile since I have been on here, was nice to see my Electric Indian pop up on the title bar after all this time.

    I am starting to build a new bike just ordered the frame and everything today and was looking for suggestions for engines. I know some new stuff has come out and wanted to see what everyone thought was good, what was junk, and what I should order for the best deal for my money.

    This bike I'm going to make a hybrid, I will be putting an electric and gas motor on it. I included the frame pic below and what a finished one looks like I will be making some dramatic changes though. I'm excited to be building another bike.

    On a side note I am going to be selling my Electric Indian if anyone is in the Southern California area and interested let me know.

    Yes I am planning on doing an in frame gas engine and a front wheel electric hub, The electric I know it was a gas engine that I was looking for suggestions on I found what I think may be a good one on eBay:
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=320483502002&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT

    and as for the frame I got, yes it is a SuperFat frame from Cycles US in Upland, Ca.

    Also I am changing out the spokes on my rear wheel putting 12 gauge spokes on does anyone have a contact for getting spokes? I need 9 7/16" or 240mm it is a 24" wheel and I am having a hard time finding that size I may have to have them made . . .

    Thanks guys

    Just found this site:

    The 50 pack I ordered are 11gauge so they are bigger, the 1/8" difference was in the length

    You guys do payment plans?
    I would like a 4cyc kit but they are more exspensive right?

    but also quieter, more powerful? haven't looked into them to much you have a link or a pdf sheet?
