Q- Why should I buy this bicycle engine kit? 
A- There are many good reasons, but only enough space for a few. You get tremendous savings on your gasoline bill, plus this ride is an exhilarative experience you can't get enough of and it makes a great backup transport. 


Q- Which payment methods do you accept?

A- We take PayPal, as well as credit and debit cards.


Q- Can I order by phone?

A- Sure you can! 

Q- What kind of bicycle can be used to build this motorized bike? 
A- Any 26” bike will work with little to no modifications although other smaller bikes have accepted our kits. Basically, it’s a clearance issue. As long as the engine will fit into the space in the frame it will work. The engine is 10 ½ inches tall and 5 inches wide. IF YOU HAVE GEARS ON YOUR BICYCLE, IT'S NOT A ISSUE!

Beach cruisers, mountain bikes, all work. Anything with a big enough space in the frame!

Q- What is meant by street legal; and is this bike street legal? 
A- Street legal defines a vehicle that is legally allowed to travel on the streets. Some states require license and registration for a factory made moped, but a customized bicycle is considered pedal assist by federal law. However, it is your responsibility to check your local laws and regulations.

Q- How do I know if this is a good deal?

A- Because you know the cost and disadvantages of other vehicles; example-A motorcycle can go faster, but you can't peddle and you need license and registration. A car can go faster and take passengers, but it cost much more in fuel cost, licensing, insurance and maintenance; you also can't take it inside your home. These are just some of the advantages of owning a sleek, dependable, clean, lean and mean machine!


Q- Why is your kit better than others I’ve seen?

A-Our kits have a proven reliability based on the thousands that we have sold in the states. Our kits offer a direct chain drive engine completely independent of the peddle chain instead of an unreliable friction tire drive that wears out and slips when the wheel gets wet. What makes our kit superior is the fact that they use upper and lower engine bearings that last up to 20 years instead of cheap bushings that are known to wear out in 4-6 months. We also work directly with the factory to upgrade every aspect of the kit including push button alloy clutch lever, heavy duty motorcycle chain, aluminum fuel petcock, well build twist grip throttle with integrated kill switch, low profile carburetor, large frame adapter and most importantly a seller that is there when you need parts or support.

Q- What's included with the purchase of this engine kit? 
A- Everything you need to convert your bike into a moped along with a complete detailed installation manual. 

Q- Can I pick this engine kit up? 
A- Yes, you are welcome to come our shop in San Rafael, California. Please call ahead to schedule an appointment. 

Q- How is this engine kit shipped? 
A- All of our kits are shipped using fast Fedex Home Delivery and come carefully packaged. 

Q- How long do I have to wait before the engine kit ships? 
A- The kits are packaged to order. Most kits are usually shipped within 1-4 days except weekends and holidays. The kits ship through FedEx ground. So for west coast buyers, shipping is very fast, east coast buyers can expect to wait slightly longer.

Q- Do I need a driver's license to ride a bike with an engine kit installed? 
A- As stated before, any bicycle fitted with an engine under is considered a pedal assisted bicycle and therefore no license is necessary in most states. It is your responsibility to check with your local authorities.
