Hey guys. I'm steven from orange county and I just bought this awesome bike and I was thinking about motorizing it. Can you guys tell me on what some of my options are? I want to have a direct drive to the sprockets (if it's possible) but idk how to do it with this frame.

This model has worked well for electric motor, it looks like anything else would be quite a challenge.

are they 20" wheels?

yep...electric is the best option... anything else is just going to be a nightmare.

540 size brushless, toothed belt, run about a 25T:125T mounted on the swingarm, get some decent lipos and speed control, pop wheelies...

how do you sit on that seat, and how come the gooseneck is around backwards?

Welcome! Yes HeadSemss is correct. Most motorized bikes are 26 or bigger so 24" will work for gas motors. All so your frame does not have enough room for a gas motor. Only other thing is maybe a kit with the motor over the rear wheel but do not know much about them.
