Nothing wrong with that motor as long as after you install it you bike is still considered a motor bicycle.

Goat Herder makes a good point. Care needs to be taked not to turn your bike into a motorcycle for good reason. I think that detail is going over the heads of some.

That's one of the reasons why right from the start I've taked pains to try to make my bike look as much like a bicycle, and as little like a motorcycle as possible.
