Yes..we are already past the "not a Morini" part. As I said in the other thread, the fellow who originally linked it in the chatbox said it was a Morini knockoff, and since I don't know Morini motors, I took his word for it.

Regarding gearing, I wasn't aware of the internal reduction on most motors. If I should need a jackshaft, so be it. What would the recommended gearing be on the jackshaft, assuming an 11t on the motor, and a 40t on the wheel?

26" rim, outer diameter of the tire is approx 29" I think, which is a circumference of 91.1046 give or take.

Or, in lieu of the pocketbike motor, what would be a good alternative? For suggestions, bear in mind that the motor will be mounted on a piece of channel over the back wheel, as this is a full suspension bike it will be going upon.
