Smile Need Ideas for a GIRLS motorised bike

Hi Guys

I'm the proud owner of a zbox 50 and have found it to be so much fun. Now the thing is my girlfriends had a go and she wants one of her own.

We have a couple of those old 70's girls step though pushies that she absoloutly loves , the ones with the 22inch wheels.

Now ideally,

I would like to install a kit on these but due to the geometry of the frames it looks like it will fit but the crank can no longer turn. (the pedals i mean)

Does anyone have any ideas, expoerience or suggestions to knock up a motorbicycle using an old girls frame or even a BMX bike, just something small and easy to handle.

Not sure if i posted in the right section ,
I did a search but couldnt find any info on odd installations.

You can try a rack mount set up (over the rear wheel) or a weed wacker type friction drive. Both will fit nearly any bike.

As far as the in frame type, you can get them to fit some ladies bikes, but you'll have to do some measuring as you have done to find the right bike....

Welcome to the site BTW.
