    This is my first build, so please be gentle. ;)

    I picked up a Huffy Savannah 700c yesterday for about the price of a set of bike tires (not exactly what I wanted, but couldn't pass this deal ;) ). Before buying it I did a google and found this example so it must be possible to motorize:

    Here are the dimensions of the tubes:

    I'm thinking of buying this motor kit:

    My question is, will this motor fit on my frame? Looking at the first photo, I see he's gone with a slant head and it doesn't look like he's using any special / custom mounts. I don't know what motor he's using. Any thoughts or suggestions? Incidentally, I'm not married to buying the kit from Raw nor that particular kit, any reputable dealer and kit is fine.
