  1. Need some help with a Cateye

    New to PocketBikePlanet? Star With an Introduction
    Hello all, I'm new to the pocket bike world. I've done some work on minibikes before using a 212cc 4 stroke engine. I recently picked up a cheap 49cc 2 stroke cat-eye bike and I was looking to do an engine swap. Was wondering if this engine would work for it, or if I would need to mods. Thanks...
