    Would this bike be a good candidate to have a motor installed onto it? I strung in a 7-speed rear hub.Your input is appreciated.

    That's a good looking bike, it should make a nice Mb. Read the sticky about fenders.

    The nexus rear hub is great, but I don't think you can attach a motor sprocker on it. Plan on using a jackshaft/shift kit that powers your pedal sprocket.

    Good call on the rear wheel, maybe he could use a sprocket adapter. Or he can use a single speed wheel and use the rag joint.
