It looks like a roadmaster sx sport mountainbike i use to have.
The bike frame or engine mounts may have to be modified.
You may have to make a cutom intake for you carb to clear the frame,either longer or off to the side. Your sparkplug may also have problems clearing the frame unless you get a slant head.

But if your willing to do extra work to get the engine mounted it looks like it would make a nice ride. But i bet there are easier bike frames to mount a engine on for around the same price or a little more.
Well I will have to go check out the actual dimensions but it looks like it should fit. I only have experience with cruiser frames so it will be an experience. What are the dimensions of mtb frames that fit motors well?
