    Your walmart skyliner is not "his" skyliner His is more like this http://lordoflightaz.com/images/schwinnskyliner.jpg which is my Skyliner. I personally like the look, you will need to make adjustments for mounting the front of the engine I have a livefast motors front bracket.. http://lordoflightaz.com/solar/bicyclepart1.html goes over my first bike build, which I need to update I added some stuff, but not much and not required.

    There is way more than enough room for the engine, and I bet you will have fun putting it together.

    It depends on if you want a rack mount or frame mount. Rack will be much easier and you need to narrow it down further as to which rack mount.

    I mounted many a frame mount to the 2007 Skyliners. The 08/09 Skyliners seemed to me very tight for a frame mount. I actually carried an engine into Walmart to fit it.

    I think there are better choices if you want a frame mounted engine. My skyliner was my bike before hand. The new one doesn't excite me much. I do like that it has front shocks.

    Zoombicycles has a picture of an an engine http://www.zoombicycles.com/downloads/engine-template.jpg that you can print out and take to the store to put in the frame

    Hey I found the old style cruiser skyliner that you showed me on craigslist for $20! haha, He said it needs some work and the derailer is pretty messed up, I might be able to come up with the derailer though, Its deff worth checkin out right? I think ill use this bike as long as its not too beat up.
