Thanks for the pics of the engine..

It looks like a lengthwise frame mount would be best, but you would have to fabricate mountings and such.

What you could do is get hold of a GEBE mount and rebuild it to take a manual clutch - that way you'd be able to start the engine by pedalling off and dropping the clutch.

The problem in this situation is always going to be what method you use to start the motor - because almost all the MA engines are started from the propellor boss.

You will need strong wheels and components on the bike to cope with the power - 9hp is more than even the racing mopeds such as the Fantics came close to.

welcome to the forum and we'd love to see pictures when you start building
