    That works nicely. It gives a whole lot of room for an engine. Even a five horse Briggs would fit in there sitting upright, not that she would want anything that big, I imagine. What will you do for the gas tank, fit it behind the seat? A 98 Villiars would be classy, but a little China Girl would pop right in there, quick & easy.

    stripped the frame & primed it up , Not sure on the engine angle though it mys have too much tilt on it. Will weld a tapered bit of frame on the top tube so the tank will sit level..

    Looks good. Just a suggestion to take a good look at the fender supports to be sure they are solidly attached. As you know, these kit motors vibrate a lot and tend to loosen up nuts and bolts and sometimes with fenders cause metal fatigue and failure where they attach to the frame. If that happens the fender can move on you and end up under the wheel... not good. Always worth checking and if necessary add a little extra something there to keep the fenders where they're supposed to be, above the wheels.

    How's she like her new bike? Pretty cool you'll be able to ride together. Get a kiddie trailer and the short people can come along, too, with mom & dad.
