Greetings,

I just found out about motorized bikes a few weeks ago. I am looking to buy a kit, or fully assembled bike. Does anyone know of a location that I can physically purchase one in the state of Florida?

It seems that a state as big as Florida should have many outlets. But I have found nothing on searching the net.

Any information would be appreciated. ..... EXCALIBUR

Thanks For The Help

Thanks Mickey. That's the first store that I have seen in FL. Though it is about 400 miles from me. Hopefully someone knows of one closer to Orlando or West Palm. Ex/ Bill

Thanks guys. Well I have been looking at Dax's engine kits. Also Kings Motor Bikes and Spooky Tooth bikes. I would like to just find a shop that sells a variety to take a look at.

Kings has a bike w/2 stroke motor, advertized for 460.00. That is the best deal I have seen so far. Shipping is about a 100.00. They have a South Fl area code, but a Louisiana address on their site. I have emailed but not heard back from them.

I have an inexpensive China Mart mountain bike right now. I will buy a better bike to mount an engine on.

What I can't get a handle on is why the assembled bikes with 200.00 two stroke motors, are generally 500-700.00 at most dealers.

Are the bikes they put them on 300-500.00? They all claim that installation is quick and easy to install the kits.

If I can't find a Florida store to shop in I will order one off the net. But it would sure be nice to look at some fully functional bikes first.

I like the way the center mount looks better. But the rear mount makes a lot of sense. I am not reading much positive feedback on friction direct tire drives. So belt or chain will probably be my choice.

Welcome to MBc. "Quick and easy to install". Let me guess. You saw that in an advertisement.
