    Not exactly the best place for this post, but yes, it's possible.

    Why would you do so? If you remove the pedals, etc, it becomes a moped. Don't knowwhere you live, but that opens up a whole #10 size can of worms, legally. Not too mention, what if your engine dies - you gonna push it the whole 8 miles (or whatever distance) home?

    Motored bikes exist for sound reasons. Building an under-engineered, under-powered, unreliable motorcycle from one isn't a real good idea.
