Default Re: This bike and kit to build with?

I think that's a aluminum frame so if you motorized it keep an eye open for stress cracks. That being said I still have the first bike I built over 5 years ago which is a o.p. cruiser which is also aluminum. My bike has always had a 48cc engine except when testing 66 CC engines. The differences between vibration on the two is a concern, with the only 66 CC I tried on mine the vibration was to me excessive. With the 48cc I have little to none at cruising speed, which for me is 25-26 mph. Mounting the engine solid helps, be sure to also mount the exhaust solid too. If your engine kit come with several mounting straps of different thicknesses use the thickest you can, I found this to reduce vibration also. The strap goes on the back side of the seat post and is critical to a solid mount.
Your results may not be the same,Greg
