Two words: Instant Smile! : ) I just wanted to let everyone at Golden Eagle know what a wonderful product they have created. I think that it is brilliant and at the same time, very easy to operate, assemble, and maintain. I have a cheaper bike from Wal-Mart that I attached the engine kit to. Installation from opening the box to whizzing down the road at 40 miles per hour took me about an hour. The Golden Eagle has since been my main mode of transportation. Within the first 48 hours of ownership I completed the break-in process after riding it from NC to Raleigh, NC and back, on a 3 day week-end. I achieved approximately 250 miles per gallon of fuel, and accomplished the 160 mile ride in approximately six hours with no problems at all. I only weigh about 150 pounds, and I ordered the highway gear and the exhaust so I average in the high 30’s to 40 miles per hour on flat ground. I now have approximately 800 miles on the bike and am contemplating another Raleigh trip. I look forward to any new products or advancements in development in the future. I would recommend this kit to anyone who just wants a lot of fun or simply cheap transportation. I have received more looks on this bike than you can imagine. Many seem awestruck that a bicycle is capable of such speeds and is totally 100% street legal in North Carolina. By the way, the Golden Eagle also does great on the beach in the sand. I wouldn’t consider any other kit; Golden Eagle is in a class by itself.
