Default Re: just bought my project bike

That will be a great platform for a motorized bicycle. Good lines and any engine kit will fit. Just a word of caution about the fenders however. The front one especially can give you problems which could be dangerous. Keep a close eye on the mounts and preferably reinforce them if you choose to retain the fenders.
Most cruiser styles will require a custom front engine mount. Yours however appears to be more of a 'V' frame which might allow for a bolt on installation. Lots of good ideas here on that subject if you need it.
Also, most cruiser style frames will benefit from a lay-back seat post which will make for a very comfy ride. Good luck and keep us posted on your build. Don't hesitate to ask if questions or problems arise.
