Thank you also for the compliment, I first purchased a motor then realized I haven't owned a bicycle in over 20 no wait 26 years (omg). so I went to our cheapest retailer in the area (walmart ) and picked this cheap model up. Only thing I didn't like was the original seat and also the brakes, other than that the bike seems very adequate.

And yes I had trouble mounting my front motor mount to the some what over sized front tube, I have worked with metals all my life so it was just a small matter of using longer bolts and putting a small "tweek" in them so they would fit better. I didn't realize until a day later what that one plate that comes with the kit (the so called mutli bike mount) Or I would have just simply drilled the frame and used that mount.

One other issue is the intake was too long , so i just removed the plastic cover for the air filter and am running it with just the filter for now, and I had to turn the carb off center a bit to make it fit the frame. But I seen a modified intake from one of the forum members here that I will try and just shorten my intake and then use the proper air filter set up .

Oh almost forgot, the frame is a normal 26 inch frame
