If I can find a bike in the $100 range that won't need a lot of modification I'll be happy. Thought's and advice on this would be welcome, I'll try and post pics when I find a bike and start the build, till then I'll be reading others posts.
It's OK that you bought the engine kit first, As a matter of fact, its a good idea to do that, because you may want to take the engine with you when you go to look at a bike, to see if the front and back motor mounts are going to fit or reach the tubes of the frame that you will be mounting it to. I had to do a make-shift add-on motor mount extension on my front motor mount.
