I have a pocket bike with a little blown 2 stroke motor in it. I want to swap engines on it but don't know where to get a motor from. I know Harbor Frieght has a 2.5 hp horizontal shaft motor for $100, But like Northern tool and equipment stuff, I'm weary to buy a motor from Harbor Freight. Do you guys have any other suggestions as to where I could get a motor for relatively cheap?

Would that HF motor even be any fun in that bike?

You could scour Craigslist and try to find an old 50CC dirtbike motor to retrofit.

that little HF motor is 79CC 4 stroke so it could be some fun. I thought about trying to find a KX 65 motor but if i did it'd probably need rebuilt, and a new one on ebay is like $600.

I thought about just buying someones CRf50 on CL for like $800 and modding it but I already have this pocket bike so i'd like to work with what i have.
