    Hi everyone. I'm new here and kind of short on time as i have tests to study for, but I just couldn't help myself. So I will just get right to the point. I was wondering whether a 3HP Briggs & Stratton motor would be better or the conventional 80cc/66c ebay bike motors? I'm pretty sure the 3HP Briggs will fit in a scwhinn stingray occ. I attached some pictures. Thanks in advance

    Welcome to the forum.
    You can build a great motorbike with a Briggs motor - if you are experienced with fabrication. It will not simply bolt on.
    If this is your first build, get the 66cc motor kit. Get good with the basics before trying a Briggs build.
