Are there any other 66cc/80cc engines out there or better?

I'm new to the forum and wish to build a motorized bicycle. I plan on building the 66cc one first, but I have bigger ambitions after that. I looked at a Kohler's SH265 and SH255, I am wondering if it is possible to mount these engines. They have more power, and most importantly, have better quality. I mentioned Kohler, but I know there's Brigg's and Straton too.

if you are not relying on a complete kit, then it is your wrench, so you can build what you want

I just wanted to know if there was an engine out there like a Kohlers or Briggs & Straton to do this. I saw on a YouTube comment that a guy used a Briggs & Straton 6s. I also wanted to know if there were tutorials, any advice, for these non-kit engines. Like I said, I'm thinking about it for the future.

every non-kit build I've seen is completely different from the other non-kit builds - I've seen some REALLY strange stuff - a guy with skills can go crazy with it and still get a good running bike

How good is your mechanical skill sets? The ability to weld is a necessity when doing non-kit builds. If you are in to two strokes, I recommend looking into a DeNardis or a Morini clone. Most of them have at least 5hp and are plenty reliable. I also think they would mount into the frame better than boxy "general purpose" four stroke utility engine. My favorite is the S6S because it is good looking and is 8hp
