Bike kit decision for schwinn stingray---please look---

Hey guy's,

I'm very new to this forum, in fact I only signed up a few hours ago. Anyway, I am seriously thinking of buying a 70cc motor for my schwinn stingray bike. Now, I have found a bike kit on ebay for $120.00 buy it now, and I was wondering if this kit is what I want to motorize my stingray. I also am looking at another seller that is selling a kit for 189.00. If anyone at all has had any expereince with these sellers or their motors, I would love to hear from you. I really am just asking for some good info about these two motors and their sellers. And also, if there is going to be certain ajustments I might need to make to make the kit I buy fit my schwinn stingray. Thank you so much in advance!

ps. I have included the item's URL here: http://cgi.ebay.com/80cc-Motor-Bicy...ryZ75211QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

It's really a 70cc engine, not an 80. That's called advertising hype. You will need to do a lot of homework if you want to get a deal on ebay....or just order one direct from that'sdax (ebay I.D. dacscommm) he's got great after the sale service!

I just looked at his motors. They look nice. So you have bought from him? Let me know. Thanks.

Yes, that is actually one of the links that I provided for one of the choices I was considering. The first one's shipping cost is $55 and the second, $30. So I think that will make a diffierence in my decision. Thanks for the comment, and keep them coming! :D

If your choice is going to be between ThatsDax and PowerKing, here's my observations (from reading, not hands on). I've heard pretty good experiences with both products. However, Dax cruises this site, and has an excellent rep for service.

Just remember that there seems to be a direct connection between how you ride and how long the engine will last.

Ok, Thank you guy's so much for the comments. If ANYONE at all has had a personal expereince with any of the two motor sellers I am considering buying from, just leave a short comment about what you think about it. Thanks.

I've bought 2 boygofast engines. Each kit shipped had some sort of damage. Both kits had dented gas tanks, one kit has frayed throttle cable that couldn't be used, paint quality poor on everything painted.
One engine (roller bearing) failed but it was at a very high speed going down hill.

For a first time newbie, I would recommend a Dax kit which has a great warranty.
