That bike is a dream ! Wow I’m going to take a look at the mounts and give it a try. Thanks for the helpYou would need something like my homemade motor mount with swivel to do that so you can raise the level and angle of the motor and be situated more towards the rear...From there you would cut your chain down to size and possibly even be able to maneuver the motor in such a way is to not need a tensioner at all like I did on mine.
Link for one of these mounts at amazon.
