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! :)

thanks for the kind words.....
and kronic...you'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:
