    Hi I'm new here. Can I put a motor on my electra rockabiliy boogy? It has an upgraded transmission.or should I just keep it stock?

    I'm a big guy I weigh 230 would 80cc works okay?

    How hard is it to pedal with the motor on the bike

    Do you have to hold the clutch

    I like to keep things relatively simple so that option is up to you. but It should fit but you would have to remove the chain guard from the bike and probably a few other customizations. And if it's going up hills and has problems riding u can help the motor by pedalling up the hills without holding down the clutch. I wouldn't recommend pedalling at any other time unless u hold down the clutch and kill the motor. Otherwise you are wasting gas.
    This is all assuming if you are installing a two stroke. Anything over 49cc I would recommend a larger bike
