    Ive been looking online and dont mind paying for postage.

    Not very interested in cheap stuff on ebay or last legs stuff on gumtree.

    Does any body know of a shop or person making quality motorised bike packages?

    Ive had 2 and they have slowly fallen apart (clutch worn out wheels buckling etc) & Now Id like to buy one to get around on again (up tp 10 kms on roads).. How ever i am not that mechanically minded and would like to buy one.

    These guys seem to have some cool stuff but there must be other places / people?


    In particular this one:

    Also interested in personal sales if anybody has something they would like to show me.

    But there must be other places. PS iM in SA so there would be best.

    thanks for any help guys.

    Check your local craigslist. There is usually someone local that will assemble a bike for you.

    I can build you one. I specialize in building shifter kit bikes with centrifugal clutches and many mods for reliability. Shipping is cheap via Greyhound bus lines which have been great to me over the years.

    I am thinking SA is South America as it is not in the US unless SA was a typo. Shipping a completed and tested MB intact is pricey however, once it has fuel in it for testing it is considered hazardous cargo and can't ride on anything primarily carrying passengers.
    I build a lot of shifters as well, some examples here http://kcsbikes.com/currentBuilds.asp

    Skyliner, how do you ship an MB on a bus? They won't even allow a motorized bike on the bike rack on the front of the local buses here in Phoenix, Arizona.

    Just curious as I turn down out of state work due to the hassle of shipping and of course a brisk custom build local sales flow, so much I need to have an employee, but it would be nice to fill orders for ultra high end bikes in other US states.

    OP, KC seems to build nice bikes. You may wish to consider one.


    Great for shipping oversized items. Only drawback is you must deliver/receive at a bus terminal. I use an auxilary fuel tank to test/tune the bike and an identical used exhaust. Once MB is tuned, I clean carb and engine thorougly to remove gasoline/oil and install the new exhaust. Carb area, engine, and muffler exit are all heavily wrapped with puppy pee pads and taped up to ensure no spillage. Before engine is boxed in an bike shipping box, I drop a half-dozen dryer softener sheets to freshen things up.
