I've almost got my bike running! I got a 49cc 2-stroke gasoline engine (not sure who makes it, but its not like the whizzer clones that I see on this forum a lot). It has an electric start and I've yet to put on the drive train and fuel tank. I had to custom make my mount, and I learned how to weld to do that(you can see my first welds I've ever done on the mount itself :) I decided to put it together when I decided it'd be cheaper than getting a nice scooter or driving my t-bird back and forth between school and home. Heres what I have done so far, hope you guys like it!

Well here's about all the information on it I have figured out:

-Its 49cc
-2-Stroke
-EPA Certified
-Used on the XG499 GoPed

Whenever I find the engine on shopping sites it simply says:
"EPA Certified 49cc 2-Stroke Gas Engine"

If anyone has any info about these engines, how well they run, known problems, etc.. I'd be glad to hear it. Also, Anyone know where to get a 6-8" jackshaft and a set of pillowblocks?

Check out DAX's site. His Titan carrier may be just the ticket.
The bike rack mount is a bit scary. It may throw your chain some.

Thanks a lot for your help. I won't be able to put it all together till the end of summer. It will be a blast to ride when I get back. I'm going home for the summer and my bike unfortunately has to stay in Arizona :( When I get it all put together I'll put more pictures up, maybe even a video or two. I want to put a shifter on it, so I have a low for climbing hills, and a high for better gas mileage on flat ground. Anyone try that and have any good results?

Sorry, I have no answers for the questions you asked.

but it looks to me like you're going to have a fine machine. Good luck.
