Thanks, Greg.
I'm struggling with learning Windows 10 and a new computer. I was going to answer his question but..........

Greg gave you the right answer, brywink04. If that doesn't work for you, let me know.

I would really like the expansion chamber on the bike. does anyone make a part that I can bolt on to make the exhaust chamber longer to make exhaust sit further away from the pedal? i don't know how to post pictures
What I do on all my predator bikes to get the pipe in the right shape is clamp it to a welding table or some other object that isn't flammable, take my acetylene torch and heat up the pipe till its glowing orange in the section I want to bend, then clamp onto it with a vise grip and bend it a little bit so it fits the way I want it to.

I am also new to this game, but researched several You Tube videos, on motorized bicycles, before starting My build. My Bike is a basic cruiser with small tubed frame. I had no problems fitting the motor on the frame. I have seen some full suspension mountain bikes that have a shock mounted where the engine would go. Maybe the engine could be mounted high, but it would be more problems that I would want to tackle. I'm having enough problems, with what I have!

The beach cruiser is probably the most use bike by new builders, they offer plenty of clearance and accept most motor combinations without any modifications. I prefer the b/c over others because being over 6' it rides better to me.

any cruiser with gears and real brakes and 26' wheels is good - I tend to build the ones with smaller frames tho, as it is nice to get both feet flat on the ground
