    I am a returning MB person. I had a GIANT Boulder SE with a GEBE and 33cc motor kit installed. Like a fool I sold the bike and kit. I am again looking to find another kit for me, my wife and my daughter.

    I would love some suggestions on what all bikes fit the GEBE kit or a better kit? I have motors and am looking for kits, bikes or preferably blown motor bike setups.

    Anyone have a list of what Hybrid bikes will work with the GEBE Kit?

    Looking at your age, I'd guess the daughter is small. Think about a tandem bike with forward rack mounted friction drive and a sidecar, maybe.

    My daughter is 14 and can ride a 24" bike. However your comments are ideal for my 10 year old son. Where can a sidecar rig be found? I thought of a trailer for towing as well.

    Sidecars can be found in most any shop with tools, and a guy who knows how to use them. For sale? No clue. As I told another newbie yesterday:

    I can make a few suggestions, but probably the finest sidecar equipped motored bike I've seen was built by lhemrick: http://www.motoredbikes.com/album.php?albumid=1150&attachmentid=41403

    Also, popuna has done some interesting things in the sidecar line: http://www.motoredbikes.com/album.php?albumid=527

    That design inspired some thinking on my part, so I drew up an articulated freight platform narrow sidecar with an HT engine on the sidecar side. As designed the bike can be leant about 35 degrees either way, and the sidecar wheel leans with you, keeping all 3 wheels on the ground.
