Wouldn't want to sell it, would you?
I'd be interested to read about those other methods of mounting the engine, (I do use the search function, but a link is always helpful). Even though I plan to do a boardtrack set-up, I knew right away that I didn't want to modify the frame in any way. In some ways I feel handicapped by that, but I think preserving as much of the original bike as is possible is important. I don't even want to re-paint it even though it has many scratch marks with rust. If anyone has any suggestions for those I'd like to hear them.
dvddtz, I had planned to offer the engine to a friend in return for a favor, (letting me use his welding equipment) but if he doesn't want it I'll let you know.
