Motorized Mountain Bikes and Road BikesMotorize a full suspension mountain bike to get a smother ride or for a little more speed try motorized road bicycles. This section is for sharing ideas on motorizing your mountain and road bikes.
I don't think Dax sells the rear mount chain drive kit anymore. That was years ago. Everything is on the first page except parts. There is a button you push by each item to purchase it. If no button is there its probably not in stock or you have to call and special order it. I never ordered from Dax but that's how it seems to me I been checking them out for about 8 years or so and only heard good things never a bad word. Oh, and it seams to me you could put a friction drive on any tire but some people say offroad tires don't work to good but people say all kinds of stuff and don't even know what THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT

EDIT: OR COMPLETELY DISREGARD CAUSE I COMPLETELY DERPED ON WHAT I THOUGHT YOU MEANT BY FRICTION DRIVE.
Took a look at pics of the bike and it just looks like standard road geometry and spacing. I had a time trying to just fit the engine rear mount cause there's barely any room between the wheel and the seat tube.
Depending on your seattube/downtube angle, you might run into the same issues I did and have to do some serious playing to find a descent angle to let your air filter and muffler fit as well as getting a chain line that isn't going to hit the bottom side of the engine casing coming from the sproket. I honestly don't know how you'd fit a friction drive setup in there if it's anything like my frame.
Here's a lil on the problems I faced when building up a SS. Might want to consider as you're figuring out spacing on your build.
