    Anyone ever thrown a saddlebag over your bike to hide the engine? I imagine ya need a spacer in there to keep from over-heating.

    No, but I once had a bicycle that you could fit inside a saddlebag.

    My friends dad made me a snap on cover of naugahyde to cover the engine and gas tank it works great- only if not running. I did this because our ferry system charges exorbinate rates.

    i was thinking a motorcycle cover or bicycle cover that has tarp that cant be cut and lock that to bike with cable so noone can take off and then lock bike to bike lock post to prevent others from seeing so noone will know there is an engine and to prevent stealing, just like a motorcycle almost.

    I use a large gas grill cover for mine, real heavy and at this time of the year you can usually find them on clearance sales. Picked up mine for $15.

    for real stealth get a motor thats mounted over the back wheel and use a milk crate to hide it.

    Go a step further and get an old chainsaw bar with a chain and have the end of the bar sticking out of the milk crate.

    It'll cover the noise, people will just think you left your chainsaw running in your milk crate. :D
