    I have a trek 4300 alpha that im planning to put a flying horse 66/80cc motor on but im not to sure it will fit. How can i tell if it will? -214312212384368130.jpg

    it would fit, but don't use an aluminum frame for motorizing. you'd get maybe another couple hundred miles out of it before you crack the frame

    those bottle cage posts can be a pain in the ass too

    Thank you. Do you think it would be fine to put it on there for like a weekish and go like a maximum of 2 miles until i can find/buy a better bike amd what type of material should the bike be?

    ideally steel or chromoly, steel being the preferred material. stay away from aluminum and carbon fiber. titanium hasn't been extensively tested but it should in theory be a good material.

    I would suggest checking yard sales and thrift stores for a good bike. bring a magnet with you

    personally, I wouldn't mount an engine to that bike at all.
