    It's a little unorthodox but not unheard of to rack mount a 2 stroke. Somewhere here are some photos of a couple of rack mounts. I'd have to spend some time looking for them. The biggest issue is chain angle from the drive sprocket to the rear wheel and finding a place to mount a fuel tank. Remember, the tank petcock must be higher than the carburetor inlet because it is a gravity feed system. It looks like you have some fabrication skills so you'll figure it out. Keep us posted on your progress and good luck.

    Welcome from Bellingham. 2door's is correct, rack mounting a Chinese 2 stroke is a bit of a challenge but it has been done. Finding a more compatible frame would be a simpler solution.
