    All this kits are slow compare to what it could be. Now two strokes are so advanced - reliable and powerfull I had Derbi GPR 49cc I still have it but it's 250cc now, It's a full size motorcycle/moped 250 lbs and it would do 60 milles with 49cc. I still have the engine from that bike almost like new, dont know what I'm gonna do with it, but put that on a bicycle it'll be crazy!!

    In understand that the Chinese engines kind of descended from the Russion ones.

    I'm thinking 1950's Russian until proven wrong.
