Default Worksman step through bike build

Greetings ya all I am building a Dacs engine on a Worksman step through bike (like a girls bike). Any ideas as how to mount the gas tank and the magneto as I have no top bar? Worksman bikes are very rugged, with heavy duty wheel spokes, frame, and over sized hub brake. This bike was a "Dumpster Dive Bike" my good luck. Tks for the feedback

When you say a Dax engine I assume you mean a 2 stroke. With no bar to mount the tank you might want to explore putting it on a rack behind the seat. Keep in mind that it will need to be higher than the carburetor. As for the CDI, (not a magneto, it's an ignition module), you can mount it anywhere. You'll just need to lengthen the wires and spark plug lead to accomodate your choice of location. And welcome to the forum. Good luck with your build.
