    The other day I bought a 29 inch Midway black Schwinn from Walmart and was wondering if I was going to have any problems attaching a 49cc motor for a 80cc motor to it since all of the motors I have found online say only 26 to 28 inch bikes

    if rear wheel does not have 36 spokes, you will do a LOT of extra work getting a rear sprocket onto it

    I've used a wheel that had 32, just left 3 or 4 of the bolts out of the rag joint.... It was fine
    Actually got that bike to do 40mph on a stock motor

    I wouldn't recommend leaving out bolts for someone new to these.

    Will I face any problems with it .... Like will I have to make any specific adjustments?

    rare to find any bike that doesn't require a bit of 'fitting', usually at the motor mounts - not a real problem though - everyone here has gotten through it OK

    there are plenty of 29" motorized bikes on youtube. i am with frankfort mb; you can leave 2-3 bolts out (not on same joint) if needed to fit the ragjoint sprocket onto your wheel.

    I have a 29" MB and I haven't had any issues with it except the posts are too wide for the motor mounts. But with some local fabrication work it works like a charm.
