Be more specific about the kit. The 79cc Predator will fit in most larger beach cruisers while the 212cc is a tight fit in most any bicycle frame.

Older models of the trek 820 work well for both the 79 and 212cc predator engines, but I would not buy a kit if I were you, I'd just buy the engine and then get all your parts yourself, much more fun that way and you get a better product, plus the kits don't come with mounting hardware. If you need help on how to build them, check out my instructable on building one: http://www.instructables.com/id/79cc...-From-Scratch/

What he said /\/\/\ The kits are not going to be that helpful, they are not like a China girl or 49cc 4 stroke kit where you get literally everything you need to make the bike go down the street under motor power. They will spend your money to show you what the parts look like that you need, then go buy those parts elsewhere like AGK etc. that are up to the task and fabricate the rest. The best way to look at installing a Predator motor on a bicycle is that you need to be fluent in every aspect of motor installs on bikes and then some to make one actually work properly.

My advise is before buying a kit call their customer service. If you cant get through or they put you on hold forever beware.
