    briefly- I’m still vacillating between gx120 or gc160 styles (clones are fine to me)
    The two photos are thoughts about mounting- I welcome your input.
    I want to use a cvt- options? And is there a technical drawing of a cvt or at least dimensions?
    Questions? And thanks in advance.

    Either way i think it will interfere with the pedal chain down that low in the frame......Curt

    Thank you sir, Yes indeed it will. My thought is to mount another sprocket down low. I may also need to play with sprocket size and shorten the cranks. Maybe this pic helps.
    I may have bought a gc160 I’ll keep y’all posted

    Also think about a 20" bike sprocket, as only need to be legal, and get to a station or to fix something wrong, if needed. Plus you can get wide cranks to clear the motor........Curt

    More tilt you say?- yours looks like the cylinder is 90* to the earth. If that works great, looks better. Here are a couple shots with the CVT. I’m hoping to identify any major issues before purchasing the goods.

    Yep 90 degrees is ok to run any of the hf motors. The only issue I have with cvt is the plate. But you can switch it out. If it’s a problem. Hers one I did 212 cvt and a WHIZZER sheave

    Moto- first things first- your bikes are absolutely beautiful.
    Now then- what is the plate problem? I suppose it could be oriented vertically if hitting the seat tube is going to be an issue. I prefer the horizontal look
