    hello everyone,
    I had a thought earlier to put standard 49 cc motorized bike kit on a bike that I have that has a metal basket up front.BUT, put the motor in the basket?Is there any difference,or benefit,if its front or rear wheel driven? any suggestions?

    W/O front suspension its sleezy
    easy... most centrifical clutchs will handle it, some others will need to be recalibrated, as they wont fully release in this configuration...
    A single speed rear wheel handles the chain... You'll like the way it handels trail riding... Dutchman
