Lemme soo if I can figure out how to post a picture of my bike.
First let me say....welcome to the forum! And secondly, you could not have picked a better bike to motorize....PERIOD! And I don't only say that because I own one and have built several of them, it is just hard to beat this kind of bike for the money....seriously. The Northwoods is a pleasure to ride with or without an engine and furthermore I've got almost 4,000miles on mine with a 4-stroke engine and the frame is as worthy as any and more worthy than most, especially for the money.
When people bad mouth aluminum frames and blah blah blah alloy frames crack.....guess what, all frames can crack, titanium, cro-moly, mild steel, aluminum, carbon fiber. Aluminum rocks and don't you forget it! Great bike you got there, can't wait to see it motorized.....cheers!
Here's my No wood....Ridgedale.....
