    Ebay has these kits pretty cheap and their are tons of available spare parts you can get really easy and cheap. You might need to check the inner dimensions of that bike because you might not have enough room.

    I'm not familiar with which one is better. Iv heard good things about both as well as disappointments. So ill let someone else that's more familiar answer that question. But Iv found out that if you keep these engines lubed well and your not riding them maxed out all day long, they last a long time. These engines have lasted me along time.

    Actually, I do run my Grubee Skyhawk maxed out "all day long". Old train tracks and woods trails at 50-60kph.
    About a dozen tanks of fuel through it. Holding up well even in spite of air filter failure and cylinder scratches early on.

    Not sure if you have checked thoroughly but some EU countries have some pretty stringent laws regarding these things. I would double check to make sure before buying one or be confident in the area you are riding. Cheers

    All these motors are not the same!!!
    Skyhawk motors are the best running and most quality out of all the bicycle engines

    I would kill for a Skyhawk.
    But I wouldn't quite pay for the transatlantic shipping.

    I have no idea where to find a "good" engine in Europe. TransformerCycles in UK _claims_ to have a better engine but it is expensive. £200 instead of £70. I haven't heard from anyone who can make a comparison between it and the cheap ones.

    My eBay engine is pretty horrible. It wasn't from banggood. It was auto_light_ch I think they are in Germany.
    So all I can say is auto_light_ch has some horrible ones.
    At least make sure that you get one with 8mm studs.

    From the Canadian site:

    At this time we can only ship to Canada & the Continental US.


    Get that engine if you can find someone who will ship it for you and if you can afford it. It will be a much better way to begin than using a cheap eBay engine.
    I can't recommend any specific engine, I have an eBay engine (bad) and I would prefer the one you found but I think the shipping to europe is too expensive.

    The bicycle you showed us might be too small. Look for one with a little more height in the seat tube part of the frame.
