Default new, just bought kit, looks like motor dont fit!

Hello. We just bought two kits to install on our existing hybrid bikes however we are just now realizing the engine mounting won't fit the fatter frame.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to adjust the mounting, or should we just buy a cheap regular sized frame bike to mount them on?

We bought the 65 cc motor from thatsdax. We were hoping to get them running this weekend and use them to commute to work.

Welcome to the forum. You'll like it here. Lots of motorize bicycle enthusiasts here. Glad you got it all figured out. Post some pics of your bikes. Hybrids? Are they electric and gas both? Sounds like a cool idea..................

No sorry, hybrid I meant one of those bikes that is not truly a mountain bike, but has the fat tires like one.

A "comfort bike"? I am not up on all the modern terminology....my boss yelled at me because I called his 800 dollar road bike a "10 speed".

He said "You obviously don't know ANYTHING about bikes." (yes, he's a leg shaver/spandex elitist who rides a couple dozen miles a year)

Anyhow, once you fit a bicycle motor to a bike, it becomes a motorized bicycle...and I do know a thing or two about those.
