    This looks like so much fun I went and bought a 66cc (fake 80cc) frame mount kit. Sad to say, the bike I was thinking of using just isn't suitable. It's a mountain bike with rear suspension that takes up all the room where the engine needs to go. I guess I'll be looking on craigslist for a sturdy donor bike. No worries about fitting the kit. My main concern is how well this will work without a gearbox for hills. Answers to come soon.....

    your engine has a built in gearbox.

    what kind of hills we talking about?

    ... gearboxes with more than one ratio. I've got some long hills where I live with about 25% grade and wonder how the 44 tooth sprocket will perform. I'm very curious to see what has.
