    I was wondering if it would be possible to mount a GY6 scooter engine on a bicycle? I think with a little modification, it could work.

    The most obvious issue I can see with my noob eyes is mounting it. But I also think there might be some size issues too... and maybe some power problems?

    Any thoughts?

    I had seen a Zuma motor for sale on craigslist and been tempted myself.
    Two things about the GY6 will make it very challenging. It is wider than a kit motor. It will be difficult to retain a system for pedaling. The second problem is that the output shaft from that CVT is actually the rear wheel axle. It will be difficult to trim it off.
    I think it can be done, but it will require a total chop and weld job in the bike frame.
