    Well my name is Christina, I am 25 and a little south of St.Louis in Festus, Mo.
    I have seen motorized bikes before and with the price of gas continuing to go up I have decided that I shall turn my 21spd Trek 300 into my more fuel efficient way around town. Any tips on types of engines to just how you started the process would be helpful!
    Thank You,

    you have 2 choices

    2 stroke (you will need to premix oil to the petrol )
    4 stroke (same as a car )

    id go with the 4 stroke but the 2 strokes are cheeper to buy .
    size of your frame is the next question
    most motors fit a 18 inch frame , that is to say u measure from centre of pedals up seat tube to top of frame or there maybe a sticker with size .
    your bike is ideal otherwise .
    best motor is a grubee an a 48 cc
