    I've been away from the forum for a while, until someone asked me if it was possible to put a motor on a bicycle. (what a silly idea, right?)

    I recently bought a bike that is absolutely crying out to have an engine installed, it's a bright orange bike with black fenders, whitewall tires, spring saddle and 7 speeds. It's a Kulana MoonDog from Wal-marx, cost me $100... would it be a good candidate for a frame-mounted engine?

    Oklahoma is a little more forgiving with their motorized bicycle laws... engine has to be less than 150cc (!) and cannot move faster than 30 MPH. I'd have to print out a copy of the specific section in the DPS regulations to carry with me, though... the police here are the reason so many get a bad name.

    Lastly... where is the best place to get a frame-mounted 2 stroke engine? I've seen several people, ebay and their own sites, claiming that their engine is the best, even though they look very much alike. What do I need to look for?
