Really cool I have been researching these and considering doing a couple for the wife and I. Is there anything that you would do differently?

the only different thing i would do is make sure the front fender and braces are best possible quality and checking all connections very regularly on everthing because vibration WILL work everthing loose...if you get one and have questions ill do my best to answer

20 mph is fine on these motorized bikes- the brakes are the weak link here.

Yes I am considering bikes with disc brakes and possible 4stroke but have not decided yet
2 stroke lighter but louder, cheaper but fussier

1964 Schwinn Typhoon, i added the 70's Murray springer frontend just cuz it was so different looking, 2010 66 cc skyhawk engine.. rides like a bicycle, does pretty fair on hills considering im a 5'11 260lb guy, i just liked the challenge of putting it together and making it work
