FREQUENTLY ANSWERED QUESTIONS:
Q. Is it legal ?
In most parts of the world a motorized bicycle has the same rights as a bicycle this means no license, no registration and no tax required. Transformer Cycles ships bicycle engine kits all over the world and every country has its own interpretation and laws regarding the use of motorized bicycles on public highways. We recommend you check with your local driving standards agencies and government departments regarding any legality issues specific to your area before riding on public highways.
Q. What is the warranty with your kits ?
All bicycle engine kits sold by Transformer Cycles come with a 90 days factory warranty for the engine only (all other kit parts are covered for 30 days). This means if anything should go wrong with the engine under normal operation as long as you have followed the correct fuel mixture we will repair your engine at no expense to you. Please note warranty covers your purchase, it does not cover shipping cost to send the engine to us and back to you. It should also be noted here that 2 stroke engines are the simplest engines to repair, for those who know their engines simply send us the damaged part and we will send you replacement parts within the warranty period. Again we will send you the parts at our expense but you agree to pay the postage cost. After the warranty period Transformer Cycles will back you all the way with technical support and parts should you need anything in the future. Your investment is secure, so you can relax and have peace of mind.
Q. How much can i expect to pay for a complete bike with engine fitted ?
Complete motorized bikes (new bike, new engine, cycle computer and stand) can be anything from £500 and upwards.
Q. What is the break in period and what is it for ?
A new engine requires break in time, this means for the first two full tanks of fuel you should not ride for more than half an hour at a time and not higher than 15 miles per hour. This is so the piston rings can be properly seated and other engine components worn in gently. Following a correct break-in procedure is essential for the long running life of your engine. After the engine has broken in power will increase and engine will operate more smoothly.
Q. What is it like on juice (petrol consumption) ?
You can expect to get roughly 120 miles per gallon from our engine kits.
Q. How reliable are the kits?
The kits we sell are the best of the best; We were the first to introduce them into the U.K and have been in the industry the longest developing and improving them as time has gone by. These engines have been exhaustively developed, tested and refined over a period of many years for improvement and efficiency. Transformer Cycles are the official distributors for this kit in the United Kingdom. When you buy from us you are buying the best, any other kit you see out there is going to be a copycat engine. We have many customers who bought copycat engines and after catastrophic failures decided to go for the real article, they have not been disappointed. With proper maintenance and care you can expect your engine to outlast your bike, this means thousands of miles of engine life.
Q. How clean are they ?
You should bear in mind that we are dealing with two strokes, so yes there will be some odors. But once the engine has broken in properly there is hardly any visible smoke and with these new synthetic oils they run very clean. Considering the mileage they can do on a gallon of fuel the amount of pollution is very little.

58cc will pull 140kg

Q. Can i get a discount if i want more than one kit, what are your requirements for becoming a distributor?
Discounts are available for 5+ kits only. To become a distributor you will have to request an application form from us and if approved we can discuss the possibilities further. Dealers must be able to service and repair our products for warranty work, please don't ask for dealership information if you cannot demonstrate this ability.
Q. What about parts, what if i need parts ?
Transformer Cycles now carry every part required for our bicycle engine kits.
DON'T GET RIPPED OFF…
Other kits may look similar and be tooled up the same—but they are merely cheap, imitation knock-offs!
You might as well buy an electric bike rather than waste your time with cheap imitation knock-offs from China because the aggravation and frustration will drive you bonkers!
Wherever you buy your kit from make sure it is covered by warranty, and make sure you can get parts for your investment in the future and having a reliable source will make all the difference. Remember with bicycle engine kits you get what you pay for, a cheap kit will be fun for awhile but leave you stranded when you need it most!
For U. K customers a very important NOTE: if you decide to buy your kit from abroad remember there is no warranty for kits purchased from outside a sellers country. If you have a problem it will be very difficult to sort out. Also bear in mind that you will have to pay customs charges for packages coming into the U. K. (this is something many people forget!).
