    hey guys!
    my name is Bill and from Barrie Ontario. i just registered and would love to build a motorized bike. i have a Canadian tire superbike (like 80 bucks) and want to mount a motor to it.
    my budget is less than 200 bucks. i found a kit on ebay and wondered are these worth buying?


    also found this friction kit also now is this kit?


    is there a kit worth buying that will be lower maintenance for under 200 bucks?

    thanks for the help!

    Hey Marc from Montreal here.

    I bought an engine from that seller about month and half ago no problems so far, just the instructions are hard to follow but with the help of this forum I was able to get it running and now I it ride to work every day. (12 KM each way)

    I used a bike from Walmart here a pic of it during the build I liked because it already had heavy duty wheels and spokes . plus they have a very liberal return policy (12 weeks).

    I added an gas filter and used a real fuel line but I had to put some clamps on it but now it does not leak any fuel at all.

    I just used the buy it now option.

    Good Luck!
