Default Re: Alternate clutch lever mounting??

You're correct, I'm looking at a 48cc kit. Since the derailers are part of the brake levers on this bike I will still have to eliminate the original shifters to be able to put a dual brake lever on one side and the clutch on the other. I took a look & you're right, the derailer is mounted about where the motor will have to be mounted. So, is it feasible to eliminate the shifters altogether and use the bike as a one speed? If so, would it make sense to just shorten the chain to fit the middle front sprocket and the 2nd to 3rd rear sprocket? I'm not too hip on what you can & can't do with multi sprocketed setups on bikes. I had an old Sears single speed when I was a kid in the 50's & that was easy to take apart & put back together.
