    Unlike other bikes, my mountain bike it's got a shock absorber seat

    I have been reading forms, watching videos and searching pictures......

    I guess not many people would motorized a bike with shock absorber seat

    The bike in the picture is not my bike's model, but it's got the same structure

    So......is it possible to motorized my mountain bike?

    If yes, where should i put the motor? The back? Under the bar between two wheels?

    Welcome to the forum.
    The bike you pictured will not lend itself to an in-frame engine installation. First there is no room for the engine and second you'll have chain tension issues.
    A rack mount,(engine over the rear wheel) either friction or chain drive will be your only viable options.
