    I have been a steady Cyclist for about 12 years, I just got my first Gas Bike kit last summer and i would highly appreciate any help that could be give'n.

    I have had this Mountain bike for about 10 or so years, had to replace a number of things including; pedals, the stock saddle (it hurt when riding for more than 20 min), a bunch of spokes on one rim, the rim itself, chain ring, freewheel, chain, crank arm, Front & Rear derailleurs, crankset, and bearing cages.

    The Gas Bike kit that i chose is a 48cc 2-stroke engine (no brand), I have seen the engine called at least 2 different "names" Silver Slant, and Black Stallion.

    Welcome aboard.

    My pedal bike is that exact same model. I guess it's about 8 years old now and it's been a fine bike. Especially since it only cost about $50. I"m a serious rider. So it has some miles on it and it's been reliable.

    I doubt if the stock wheels are strong enough for motoring in the long run. So you'll want to plan to replace those one day.

    Good luck and have fun.

    Guys that ride their mountain bikes hard on the trails need to replace certain parts regularly, anyway. Wheel maintenance and derailleur replacements are routine for that bunch.
    My engine was a no-name two stroke, but it installed and ran very well. It looks like that engine will work fine for you.
