You will have to relocate your rear shift selector to the left side of the handlebars to accommodate the throttle but since there is no clutch you can leave your independent brake levers intact.

Good luck with the build and again, welcome to the site ;-}
I thought so too when I saw it on-line...Then I recently "discovered" that people actually threw motor's on bicycles. If I knew then what I know now (which is very little) I would have went for a steel frame. But like i said I don't plan on extensive motoring. I will enjoy the tinkering tho. Thanks for the info regarding the relocation of the shifter!
