While you will still need a ride to and from work, you don’t have to worry about carrying all of your gear with you or driving in poor weather. All that is required is a small gas powered motor that can be used on the rear wheel of your bike. There are many different types of gas motor kits available on the market today, so it is important that you choose one that suits your particular type of bicycle.

Most Popular Motor Kit

The most popular gas powered bicycle motor kit is the 2-cycle 48cc engine kit. This kit is the most popular due to its low cost and ease of use. These kits include everything you need to run your bicycle. The engine is mounted on a bracket that can be locked to the rear wheel. All that you need to do is add your own battery, the gas tank and the proper pipes to the motorized bicycle kit. Most dealers will provide the necessary hardware for this type of kit.

A 2-cycle 48cc bicycle engine kit comes complete with a front fork, a rear derailleur, and a drive chain. It also comes with brake pads and levers, which allow you to handle the rear derailleur much more easily. The drive chain is designed to give you extra strength so that you have a smoother ride. The front fork is designed to be able to withstand falls from any heights. The brakes are standard on all models of this type of bicycle motor kit.

This type of gas powered motorized bicycle engine kit is also equipped with a front derailleur. The motor is attached to the front of the bike. This makes it easier to change gears. You will want to make sure that you get an engine that is strong enough to handle the size of bike you plan on purchasing. This type of kit usually doesn’t come with the transmission. If you choose to buy a bike engine kit with the transmission, you should be aware that the transmission must be strong enough to handle the additional weight of the bike.

Storage For Fuel

The crankcase of the gas bicycle motor kit is where the engine stores all of the fuel that you will use in the bike. There are two types of engines that you can use with these kits; a two-stage or a four-stage unit. The two stage system will produce more horsepower and will use an aluminum crankset. These are generally considered to be a better design then the four-stage units. In most cases you should go with the two-stage kit as they are more durable and will produce more power.


Both types of engines can be purchased separately. A two-stage gas powered engine will cost you more money but it will last longer. You can also purchase a four-stroke gas motorized bicycle motor kit. The gt-2 48cc engine has been designed specifically for a gas powered model of this type of bicycle. The motor has a flywheel on one side that is driven by the crankshaft, while the other side of the crankshaft is run by a chain. This design provides a very smooth ride for the rider and the engine provides more power than you would expect for a product such as this.
