    Im going for a chris hill engine the 70cc one, and may have found a bike but i measured the seat tube pipe at 13.5" and the rest was 23" and 18.5"

    would that be okay for size or 1/5 an inch to short?

    Not having any photos to go by, generally a frame that has a 13.5 in. seat tube (measured from the center of the bottom bracket to the center of the top tube) would be to small a frame to get a motor into. But there have been photos posted here of BMX bikes with motors shoe horned into the front triangles. But a profile photo of the bike would help greatly with this type of determination.
