    Welcome aboard.

    Answering your questions is complicated - my best advice is to read/search/read/search and read some more here.

    As for motorizing aluminum bikes, it has problems. Vibratory stress from the engine, and functional stress from loading and speed with the engine both fatique aluminum more quickly than steel.

    Welcome to the forum, Agent29. As an owner of a '36 Silver King Duralium, I would strongly suggest you consider using a different frame. Those frames were pinned together using couplers, not welded. I truly believe it would lack the strength and durability you would need.
