You think itd look good with 66cc mounted in the frame?
The stock seat doesn't have springs, so after a while it starts to feel kind of hard. One of the things I may do is to replace the seat with a better one.
I haven't tried pedaling since I added the motor, but I don't imagine it would make it too much tougher. It's not really that heavy and the friction drive, when raised, doesn't add any drag at all.
There was a guy in Florida who installed a 66cc in frame to his. Plenty of room but you'll need some custom mounts for the oversized tubes. I chose not to go with a chain drive, the friction drive was much easier to install.
