Building Your First Motorized Bicycle
You must admit, building and riding a motorized bike would be pretty cool. Houston Motorized has a step by step instruction video series that will show you what you need and how to put it all together. They also sell a kit that they will ship to you with everything you need to do a complete installation.
You can also buy parts and complete kits both on Ebay and Amazon. Do your research and see where you can get the best quality kit at the best price. You will have to make the final decision on what will work for your needs and budget.
There are some tools you will need to get this job done and also some mechanical skills wouldn’t hurt either. But the tools you can get if you don’t have them, the mechanical skills can be learned by diving right in and getting started. Just follow the step by step instructions in the video below to get a completely cool motorized bike that you will be proud to ride and show off.

Sunlite Cloud-9 Bicycle Seat
If you’re looking for a comfortable gel seat for your motorized bike, we recommend the Sunlite Cloud-9 Gel seat. You can get it at Amazon by clicking this here or the image above.
44 Tooth CNC Sprocket and Adapter Assembly
We highly recommend replacing the original 44 tooth sprocket and adapter that you received with your engine kit, with this kit above. Instead of the sprocket and adapter driving your chain being attached to your bike spokes, it will now be attached to your wheel hub and you will have the capability to adjust your sprocket so it’s ligned up properly. Available on Amazon here or click the image above.

There are situations where you would like to control both brake cables with one brake handle. This is where the Sunlite Alloy Double brake controller comes in. Available on Amazon here or click the image above.
