    Hi, I just recently joined this site to see how to convert a regular bike into a motorized bike. I recently bought a bike from a craigs list for $40 but I want to know how would I go about putting a motor on a step through model.

    Your best bet is a rack mount

    Hey Omar Welcome to the forum, I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

    As Terry said the easiest is probably a rear rack mount type, but we have had a few members mount the motor in frame (so to speak).

    Our great member SilverBear has this build http://motorbicycling.com/f38/39-elgin-velocipede-finished-17682.html
    Yeah it's a little different as far as frame wise but will give you an idea of what is possible.

    And here is a photo of another bike

    thanks for the feedback guys I would prefer the motor to be in the frame cause the first idea would be to bulky visual wise.
