I was gonna say the same thing about that rack. I'm also kinda curious to find out if that PJ is steel or not.

On the one hand, I'm glad you saved the PJ. It is a cool bike. But I have to agree with the others too: that bike likely wasn't made to a standard that will long suffer the stresses of being motorized. Take it easy and ride safe.
