    I am a new member seeking to build up a motorized (under 50cc) mountain bike for mostly "around town" riding. I am looking to find out what companies sell the most reliable and cost effective motors. Any suggestions?
    Thanks in advance, Tom C.

    Well, 5 years later, I am finally on my way to actually building a bike. :)

    I picked up an early 1960's Firestone "Silver Cruiser".

    With a 79cc Predator on the way along with a 4 stroke motor mount, it's all a matter of time (and money).

    I will be posting pics in the build forum in a few minutes. I hope to be comparing notes with you all soon.

    Wow! I looked at this thread and I was a bit puzzled. It started in 2009, it has 3 or 4 replies, and the last one was one week ago?

    I was on this forum back then. But I seem to have missed this thread. I was riding my very first MB. I'm now building number 4.

    So I guess you've been thinking about it the last five years?

    Still, you'll be glad you did. It's a whole lot of fun.
