    Hi, Im from Toronto, I just discovered that bicycles can be converted to run on a motorized engine a couple of days ago since I was planning to buy an electric bike, but a friend said that a motorized bike would be a better option since it goes faster and is much cheaper than buying an electric bike. So basically Im here looking for recommendation for kits to buy within the $200-300 price range that includes quality parts. And where would I buy the kits and what kind of bikes should I use, I want to put it on a MTB with front suspension, would that be a good idea and is there a specific reason why many people convert a cruiser bike? Oh and also, I was looking at this kit here just wondering if its worth buying. Thanks

    thats the truth. cruiser and beach bikes are used for looks and comfort and riding position i think. its great to have suspension front, rear and seat post.

    Shop around

    G'day Andrew
    Shop around. There are lemons out there which could sour your experience. My very faithful engine is a Skyhawk that has clocked up 2,000 kilometres. Have a look at my website

    Cheers, Greg
