Hello! I'm Keagan and I own a GT5 motorized bike I'm wanting to upgrade it and I bought gt90 conversion kit and wanted to get a new frame with a built in gas tank with front spring mounts the only one I have found this one.

I don't want to spend over 500 on the frame as that's already quite a bit I just want to get a better frame for the upgraded motor.

I do know that Gasbike is not a place you want to order from and kingsmotorbikes is iffy but all the other sights I been sent have been asking crazy prices like 1000 for a kit or so I'm just wanting to know if there are any good frames or better for the same price or less

GasBike and Kings are the same business, and their purpose is to lure in rookies with promises to sell stuff at like 500% markup making outrageous claims.

Anyway, the real Skyhawk GT2A-DB frame is a great platform, it has a gas tank and a rear disc brake mount.



I left that one bare but it is nice what you can do with these bare frames with power coating and maybe even some welding.



I get my frames and engines here http://www.bicycle-engines.com/Frames/

They are one of only two distributors of Real Grubee Skyhawk parts in the US.

I would buy a $350 (delivered) Fito Modenia 7-speed and strip it to put in on the gas tank frame.
Dual disc brakes, 3" tires, nice handlebars, seat etc, but triple tree forks.
Here is a GT frame basic swap from a Fito



I built it and gave it to customer whose bike was stolen from here.

$250 for the the custom powder coated frame, well actually $300 counting having the custom engine mounting plate made and welded in.

The forks are Sunlite Springers....

Nice forks, I have a new 4-stroke shifting build in the build in the bay with them now and it may be my last.
