    Hello motoredbikes
    I built my first, and only to this point, kit over the summer of 2009. It is a 80/68cc on a 26in Schwinn. It is a lot of fun and I have broken and fixed it about 5 times. chain, clutch, throttle, fuel delivery system and muffler.

    My plans are to build one that can get up to about 35mph without dying and one that is comfortable to ride. This might not happen as the cost factor got me into thinking about getting a scooter, and then for only a couple hundred more, I could get a nice old early 80's motorcycle.

    Who knows what I will do next but I do have a lot of fun tinkering with things.

    Since you already have a good bike, and are willing to lay out a few more schekels, try checking out David Staton He will work with you by phone or email, and he machines a chandrive custom gearbox and engine kit that is bulletproff. Ask around, he has many supporters on this forum. I have had one of his kits on my recubent trike for about 6 months now, and have not had problem one.
