I am interested in building a motored bike. I think I want to go the kit route...

Here are a few I am looking at... what do you think?

Do you think there is a major difference in these different vendors?

Only $190 plus shipping....

$235 plus shipping...

$170 shipped...

Can anyone else recommend an inexpensive, somewhat reliable kit?

Also, do they sell geaboxes that you can easily add to this kind of kit?

macarollo, please, I implore you to take a little time and read this forum. The answer you seek is here but it's not as simple as you think, so READ, READ, READ.

overall the kits are the same, so for less than $200 with no warranty I'd get the cheapest one. If your going over $200, then I believe thatsdax.com offers a warranty.

That's the reply I had hoped you would not get.

check with blue collar bike, bob's kits are good as any , apparently better than the best on the planet, he has the best price, the fastest shiping, he is out till next week , but thats still 1 week sooner that you could have delivery with a 2 week waiting peiod. plus you can call him, & talk to him before you buy, & after too!

For those kits, I'd concentrate on reviews about Powerking, King's Motors, and Boy Go Fast. Even if the products are similar, consumer experiences may vary. Dax and Chris Hill seem to get pretty good reviews. A penny saved is not always a penny earned, sometimes it's just one less thrown away.

It's true, that's your personal opinion. As to what's best, I personally don't care but there is a wide range of views on that subject. I've read very many post that would take a far different position.

cool, i usually look at it from a price standpoint. In the future when i have more money for kits i would get the higher priced ones and consider quality and such more.
