Hello guys! I am looking for a cheap ish 4 stroke from anywhere but USA. This is because shipping to Europe is really expensive, on the kits i saw average shipping was 200$.
I know about the Lifan 125cc, but is it good? I see kits on ebay from Australia for 260 USD or 250 EUR, but cant find a lot. Are those any good?
Can I find more on Amazon?

Yep, that shows up for me, but none in the search, I don't really know why.. But with a 400$ shipping! Oh god. This is why I can't order stuff from the USA..

What carb is recommended for that engine I sent? 22-24mm?

From research, Lifan engines are reputable, very powerful and dependable.
The 125cc Lifan is VERY long, has massive girth and weighs 50lbs(212cc engines weigh 38lbs). It also has a 3-speed transmission.
Because of its length, the Lifan 125cc engine is not easy to mount in a bicycle.
In all of Europe, you should be able to find a USED 4-stroke American engine for less than 100 Euros. It's probably sitting right now in a broken mower/ tiller/pressure washer.
Check your local small engine repair shops or place want ads.
Good luck.
