    Hello CJ,

    Yes, expensive. But now I know why those engines are so good. Your link above is very much worth the five minutes it took to read the fundamental differences between the Nice mill and the other usual Lifan et al replacement engines. We really do get something more in the Nice engine.

    Many thanks!!

    Rick

    Since I'm such a good accidental salesman, I should get a free one, plus commission.

    The info they used sounds very familiar to me. I think they robbed most of it from Motor City Mini Trails. http://www.ct70honda.com/NiceEngineHeadquarters.html

    Considering the usual gibberish translation to English, I suspect what you say is true. Just go to Motor City Minitrails for your engine. Virtually the same price.

    And in addition, he has everything else you might need, carbs, exhaust, etc.

    Now, all I have to do is sell a couple of model airplane engines.

    Those are awesome, I'd have to sell lot's O' crap to help pay for it but something to ponder for spring.

    Let's bill CJ for finding that lol

    But it's over a year wait if not longer for a motor. I know someone who had to wait 15 months for a motor.

    Not to thread-jack, but I'm selling my Nice-powered bike in the classifieds. Obviously the motor is used, but you get a complete bike attached to the engine! Come on boys, make me an offer...

    1422 miles on the bike, but obviously with the Nice engine being used, I have no way of knowing what's on it itself. I will try to post pics up in the next day or two in my original for sale thread. It's just dusty from sitting right now, and I haven't had much spare time to spit shine and snap some pics with getting ready to join the living dead (get married) at the end of the month.

    OOhhh.....ahhh...Well??....Married huh?...MMmmm.....Huhh...voluntarily!!?...Ok....Mayybee you should keep that 94 for a while. Them female types....you never know what they're gonna do after they get that ball and chain attached firmly to your....well to you. You might need a bargaining chip in a year or two, in order to save another, much loved bike :)

    Haha, yeah, voluntarily, believe it or not.

    I actually built a '93 very similar to the 94, except with a 117cc mill in it. I bought the Nice, thinking it'd be nice to have a pair to ride together, but she's not real fond of kick-starting. A grom is on my radar, as she'll appreciate the electric start (and likes the color yellow, lol). I guess I'm after some new-school mixed in with the old, and I'll keep the CT I built (more of my own sweat and beers in that one), and pass on the Nice to someone else hopefully. There's no doubt that I do like the Nice motor characteristics better than the motor I built, but I imagine the Grom to be similar to the Nice, so I'll keep the revver for those days I'm feeling frisky.

    Back to this thread though, I'm wondering how they can advertise a brand new motor, as I thought the Nice scooters were discontinued for the Waves several years ago. Are they new-rebuilt, with new parts?

    I'm quite sure it's NOT a crate engine. Most likely built from (hopefully) new parts. I'd definitely want to read some reviews before shelling out that much money for a motor that'll then have to be shipped around the globe. We've heard the horror stories about engine builders in Taiwan...And shipping companies too.

    Grom vs Nice110

    I'm not talking MPH speed but as a quality engine....Is it safe to say the Grom's engine is built to the same standard as the Nice engine?

    i know that the nice110 has beveled gearing for smoother shifts along with other quality features built into the motor, I'm wondering if the Grom engine has the same builds in it quality as Nice110?? Anybody know?:39:
