    I want to graft this scooter powerplant into this 20" bike frame. (this is for my buddy's son.)
    My plan is to use the tail section of the scooter. then I won't have any chain alignment issues & I can still use the disc brake.
    also, I want to use a 16" bicycle wheel on the front.

    any ideas from my fellow gearheads?

    the frame is done. I need to route the cables & wiring, attach the seat and the deck. Might even give it a coat of paint :D

    That thing is way cool. There was a guy who lived in a town close by that used to sell bikes he modified in that way.

    That is awsome Dave. Was that a 49cc motor? Will be curious about overall speed. What ever you do, don't hit any big chuck holes or you will be bottomed out! :smile:

    thanks for the kind words.....
    and're not funny :p :lol:

    I gave this blue scooter to my buddy last year. I think it's a 43cc??
    It would pull me a whopping 18 mph. My buddy's son might weigh 60 lbs, soaking wet, so he flies on it.
    The funny thing about it is.... he brought it to me a couple weeks ago to work on the carb!! :lol:
