    Have you decided on a 2 or 4 stroke motor?

    Probably just a 2 stroke. I am only going to be using it to just get me up a hill or 2 on the way home.

    welcome seafood

    looks like it will not be a frame mount motor fitting it there

    rack mount to the rear maybe ??

    yeah but it would look sweet with an in-frame motor, probably a really tight fit sorta like the stingrays with in-frame motors.

    Nooo, I have to have a frame Mount! Why do you not think a frame mount will fit? I can't do a rear mount, I need it to be as stealthy as possible, not sticking out like a 'sore thumb', long explanation. Anyway, I would really like to shoe horn in a frame mount, 'motorcycle style'. What can we do?
    thanks

    I think you could:grin5: look at this stingray with one, the clearance seems alike. What size seat tube and down tube?

    yeah, the bike is essentially a larger schwinn cruiser. Not sure about the tube size but I can find out later, at office right now. which engines do you suggest I look at?

    I'd start off with a 49cc kit(as the head will be smaller) The Vendors sections has great reviews and not so great ones so I'd check those out to get an idea. I grabbed a kit off of ebay through Zoomcycles(Viking Helmet Guy)

    OK, great. that pic is exactly what I want to get, perfect. Just don't know how it will fit with the larger frame and rims of my bike, but I will get some specs on it and go from there.
    thanks

    That picture is my bike. It is not a Stingray.

    Its frame is an original Australian "Malvern Star Dragster" from the 70's with 20" wheels.

    The 50cc just fits.

    Sorry wildemere didn't mean to offend you if I did nice ride by the way.
    What do you think about his Rumble 29 inch cruiser just by eye does it seem to be in-framable? <--lol

    I am confiedent that an engine will fit in there as it is a large frame, just wondering if the chain from the engine will reach? I am not clear if the kits come with a longer than necessary chain that allows the user to size or one size fits all.

    If length seems like an issue you could grab a second chain and a chain breaker to make the chain longer but they do give you a nice sized one it fits most bike have heard of people taking links out or using a modded tensioner to cut slack but seeing as you might need those extra links then you may be good to go.
