    hi i am interested in building a cheap 2 stroke bike from a kit and an old bike. the problem i think i am going to have is my bike has square tube for the upper half of the frame and the lower is square that leads into round... a specialized frame. so my question is has anyone ever made a rear rack mount for those chain drive, clutched, 50cc kits? or am i better off buying a cruiser from wally world and going frame mount

    Hi hans. Welcome to Motoredbikes.
    The only reason I would consider putting a HT on a rack is to hide it in a milk crate so it would go unnoticed (one of my covert plans). You could make adapter mounts for your frame or buy a cruiser bike but, DO put brakes on the front of the cruiser if you go that way.
