Changing ratios

A sporting goods store ordered new bikes and scooters. For every 3 bikes ordered, 4 scooters were ordered. However, bikes were more popular than scooters, so the store changed the next order. The new ratio of the number of bikes ordered to the number of scooters ordered was 5:2. If the same amount of sporting equipment was ordered in both orders and 64 scooters were ordered originally , how many bikes were ordered as part of the new order?
