Hi,
Glad to be here...
Just ordered a new engine today, a Snapper 40cc 2-stroke off eBay & am planning a DIY install on a Rocky Mountain RM-7 mountainbike (7 inches of front & rear wheel travel) with Maxxis Hookworm 2.5 slicks. I'm trying to think 'outside the box' about how to mount & drive. I'm fond of the Honda Cub chainstay mounted bicycle assist of yesteryear or possibly a v-belt drive. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Looking forward to the many hours in the garage,
-lowracer-

Welcome to the forum. The degree of difficulty of your build is far beyond my abilities, but a motorized freerider sounds like a lot of fun!
