I've been scouring the internet, looking for frames with full suspension, that I can put a happytime motor in. So far, I've found these:
GT LTS
GT RTS
Marin F.R.S.
Giant XtC NRS

There were a few bikes that were extremely unpopular, so I didn't bother to list them.

Anyways, if anybody could contribute to the list, I'm searching for a good frame. I thought I'd just make it public knowledge, so if anybody else is looking, they could find it easier. The more frames to search for, the easier it's going to be for me to find. I'm planning a nice build with the SBP shift kit and a 80cc happytime, it's going to be great. It's a good winter project.

FWIW - Pipelyne makes the frame Easy Rider has on his build (the second one)...They will do one offs but frame is made specifically for the Morini engine BUT one could probably adapt it to HT use.

Hope this helps.

PS - Good thread since I was only aware of the GT bikes and Pipelyne....

I also saw a Specialized FS frame that will work but I can't remember the model.

I'm going to go pick up my GT LTS on Saturday, but for some reason I'm still looking.

Either not enough room for an engine or the suspension is in the way.

Added photos of the good ones besides the one mentioned above.

This is a great idea, and i hope it comes to completion.
My bike hurts my a$$ when i ride offroad and over bumpy roads, so this would be a good next build for me.
Has anyone completed a full suspension bike with a shifter kit as of yet?
