Default Re: how to mount back sprocket on a stingray??

I was just offered an unbelievable price for a brand new, never ridden Stingray, California Chopper version. The rear tire looks like it belongs on a motorcycle, wide and *****in tread but when I examined the bike and its adaptability to an engine conversion I noticed the spacing on the rear spokes and their wide stance would never allow for a standard sprocket installation. Also the rear brakes are right in the chain path so they would have to be relocated. Has anyone ever done a conversion on this little bike? It looks to be begging for an engine but it will take some modifications to make everything fit and work. I'd like to see photos if anyone knows of any. I've got to buy this bike even if I don't put an engine on it; I can't pass up the price.
