Has anyone tried to put a 212cc engine on a Grubee Skyhawk frame.. or any frame, really?

    I recently came across a used Skyhawk GTS frame and would like to build it up with a 4 stroke 212cc engine, but when I look at other build photos online (Even though I havent been able to find many) It looks like a very! tight fit on most frames. Was hoping that someone else has done this before so I can go into it kind of knowing what to expect. If not, I'll try to keep this updated on what I come across. My funds are limited though, so it may take me a while to do things.

    a 212 does not fit in a skyhawk frame

    it will fit in some felt framed and most lowrider frames

    does anyone know of a specific low rider frame that has worked well with this engine in the past for anyone?

    Can't say I've seen any 212s in a lowrider on the forum but I also don't like lowriders...

    It's a heavy sorta motor but if it's a strong steel frame then it should work with proper mounting techniques..

    Since when? lots of people have 212's in skyhawk frames and its not hard to do!there are both horizontal and vertical mounts.

    that second one is a felt, which I said it does fit in. it doesn't clear the petcock in the first frame, notice that there's no petcock installed

    One of these might have enough room 39-inch.jpg

    Even though the bottom bar is straight? It seems like theirs not much room there. Unless I'm wrong, but it looks like my mountain bike and theirs no way it would fit there. I was hoping someone has a bike that's easily available that they threw a predator 212 into.
