    A 2stroke kit will probably squeeze in there.
    It doesn't mean that you should.
    Not sure how the torque would affect the rear shock. Don't know how it works.
    The gas tank might have to go on the rack due to your curved top tube.

    You need to read all the newbie threads (the stickies). Read read read. The rabbit hole goes deep..

    There is a thread specifically about frame fit I think it mentions a 14.5".. It is the first (top) sticky in the forum "frame mounted engines"
    Hm, I would get a different bike personally. Steel, rigid, bigger, stronger.

    Seems excessively expensive for an eBay 48cc
    Did I mention read all the stickied threads in the forums?
    You'll need lots of background knowledge which you can only get from studying the threads in the forum. Read every night for a couple of nights, weeks, or even months. It's free.

    What's your seat tube length measured inside the frame, Rob?
    Was it that hard to fit before you added the shift kit?

    From seat tube to fork tube it runs 9" horizontally until it takes a sweep up like his 18

    GEBE, rack mount...simple, efficient, carefree. Tanaka for torque, 4-stroke 25 Honda or GEBE stock engine, depending on area.

    Don't make work for yourself. Do it!

    You need 3.5 inches between rear stays, 8.5 inches ahead of rear axle. If credit card fits, drive ring will work with 32 or 36 spoke wheel. I would use GEBE HD rim and longest axle, with Schwalbe Marathons. Rest is refinements.
