Yep was over it for all the years then, my son gave me a Bike Machine Motor. That was put out in the 60's. One day put it on a bike and that's all it took............Curt

If you've ever seen a handlebar stem of the goose neck type, you will notice that the end of the goose neck that goes into the steerer tube has an angle for the wedge nut to slide up and down against. The way your frame is now, adding a section of tube between the motor mount and the bottom bracket won't change anything from a structural point, so what you could do if you want is take that section of tube and make an angle like the one I've described on a handlebar stem, and make the angle match part of the circumference of the bottom bracket, since it doesn't have to butt up against the bottom bracket for structural integrity because the motor mount is providing the structural integrity already. Anyway, just an idea, hope it makes sense the way I described it.

Heck i'm goin for new build. Probably put the frame in the donor pile. Lol. I like the fact that its low, 24 rear triangle, both my feet set flat on the ground (5'8). I've been wanting dual suspension, i think i have the frame. I'll use the rear components and make the top tube, down tube and seat tube.In the pic the front clip will be extended 3".
