PICT0004.jpgHere are my latest Bikes. A giant Elwood 21" frame with 700C wheels with a HT70cc. This is the most comfortable bike I've ever built. The larger wheels make such a difference to ride quality and the high bars and low saddle are so comfy to ride withj.
The Schwinn Alloy 7 had the HT 70cc for 2 weeks before I put the 4 stroke in.
The HT 70 was that rare thing - a good motor - just the luck of the draw. But the 4 stroke is lovely too except on hills.

I got it from Bicycle-Engines.com in Bozeman, Montana. The ones coming here aren't in quite yet and are the ones with the gearbox that only fit the HuangShen motor. The Grubee fits both the Huangshen & thr Honda GXH50.

mmbimports

MMBIMPORTS have been telling people they will have those kits next week since early last year. I'd take everything they say with a grain of salt.
It's certainly cheaper to get the Honda motor from the US - they aren't the captive market we are and their prices really show how badly ripped off we are down here on this island.

In Oz the Honda gxh QA 50 is Aus$500 - $525
In the US at Small Engine Warehouse they are US$210. The air freight is $190 but that would be lessened if you bought 2 at a time. The charge for their air freight is pretty inflated cos Bicycle-Engines.com shipped the motor and whole kit plus an extra full length exhaust for $170. They all use Fed Ex for the shipment.
I live in a very small community and I'd love to support my local shop 'Farmcare' but the prices are just too high and the margins too greedy. Despite that I have ordered one motor off them but it will be the last.
