LOL, ayup.

I personally think it is well worth that price. Is semi rare and unique.

In looking for the rear wheel for mine, the local bike shop guy's eyes lit up when he realized what I was looking for. (He was the one who told me there was a ware house full of em) Then I told him I was motorizing it. LOL. Down hill and not in a good way from there.
worst apocalypse ever

Doesn't look to me like a shift kit would fit behind the seat tube and between the rear wheel-

I'd put a 50 cc -China girl on it with an under-the-top tube tank for peddling clearnce with no tensioner if there's room and give that priority over keeping any fender. A smaller cog of not less than 36 makes that easier with a 50cc.

Skinny tires are great if you have cycling experience and don't expect to ride in dirt or gravel- it would be a great city transport with a basket or two, and more likely legal. The little 50 will roll them well, especially if you re-builld them with alloy rims

The low E wont buzz if you play it right, ban z ai.
