Has anyone mounted an engine on this Nirve Frame?

    The link didn't work for me. Looks like the web page may have been updated to "=548.02".
    I looked at all those Nirve cruisers and they all look like great candidates for motorizing.
    Some have oversized diameter down tubes that will require an oversized front engine mount. Most engine vendors sell them or make your own with a muffler clamp.
    If this is your first build, you may consider building on a "yard sale" bike first, and transferring the kit to a Nirve later. It looked like custom paint on those Nirves and it is very easy to scratch it up during installation and adjustment.

    I am not able to Edit the original Post.

    This is the current Web Page I was referring to:


    It has a "Springer" Front End.

    Thanks again for your reply.
