    Hey everyone!

    Long time cyclist here looking to build my first motorized bike.
    I've found a bike and kit that I think will do the job fine,



    Obviously I've looked into this a bit with my spare time but I'm sure the forum has suggestions on things I may have missed, or just helpful tips.
    I'm open to other bike/kit suggestions but please try to keep the total roughly less than $400 (I am a student)

    Thanks in advance for all the help and inspiration!

    I doubt there is enough room on the bike shown for an engine kit

    Yea I was looking up specifications and it did seem a bit tight, would you have any recommendations on a different bike? I went with that one cause the frame seemed pretty strong and the front suspension.

    You could mount a rear friction drive on that one.

    Please correct if wrong: The engine with plug is about 13 inches (depending on the plug you decide to use, most go with ngk bp6hs), you need about 14 to 16 inches of clearance in frame. but that bike looks like it might be short. If you can, get the measurements of the "engine housing" meaning in side the triangle and are you going to need a wide mount adapter? are the angles of the down tube and seat tube, how is the mounts going to mate with the frame angle wise.

    oh yeah one more thing the engine is really 66cc not the fabled 80cc.

    This: assuming you're in America, the engine is measured at 66cc. Chinese manufacturers market the engines as 80cc as they measure the engine displacement differently (displacement of an engine includes the area of the cylinder head's combustion chamber, as well as the volume).
