It might fit, but why would you want to put such a large, heavy powerful engine on a generic bicycle? Foolish, IMHO.

I think the largest you should run is the Predator 99cc. Even then, you're going to have to upgrade wheels and brakes at the least.

I agree with Aleman. Don't just jump on the wagon, try the 99 it's more than enough.

Buy some life insurance so your family isn't stuck with paying to bury you.

OK, to answer your question, I say no, it won't fit without a crowbar and a torch.

It was a very tight fit on my build which has a fair bit more frame space for the 212cc HF than the Schwinn. Hope this helps....

Scotto, OT question but since you were the first here that I know of to use that HF engine, is your bike for street use or just used on a track?

To be honest, I built it strictly for the track and racing purposes. I do however ride it on the street for testing and have been pulled over on it once so far.....riding it at dusk with no lights. Mainly the track, only occasionally on the street.
