The "standard" two-stroke kits are designed for a "V" frame bicycle, like a normal mountain bike, so you have to drill a hole in some of the crusier type frames in order to mount the motor. I would recomend clicking on some of the links around the forum and finding a kit that fits your price range.(the motors are all the same design-wise, its just qaulty and a couple features that is lacking on the cheaper ones, i personally have a cheap $120 kit that i love)
BTW, John, I love the Trail 90 in your avatar! I've owned 2. I sold the last one 14 years ago. It only had 900 miles on it and was in near mint condition. The fellow just parked it in a garage and threw a cover over it. I've spent the last 10 years trying to buy it back to no avail. I should have hung on to that one.
