I don’t want to pay $80 and the 49 cc plates have holes too close to the 79cc holes so it can’t be drilled. I can’t weld my own so I’m not sure what to do

A couple pieces of angle iron welded to the frame would work, it's been done before. Drill mount holes, add some touch-up paint.

You'd have to find someone who could tack/weld it for you tho. Maybe there's some welders around you who could do it cheap!

If your frame is steel, welding a motor mount plate is really the best way to go.

Much stronger way to not only attach the engine, but it ties together and strengthens the frame as well so you are less likely to crack the seat post or down tube.
