    VERY cool build!! I did something similar a few years back, may even be same type of bike. I'll see if I have some pics... I tried to be stealthy with rack mounting a frame mount kit and hiding it all with a plastic milk crate. I used heavy as fk angle iron for the rack which is too much for this set up. I like yours with the lighter looking rack :)

    so does that mean you could put two motors on one bike?

    This looks like it would solve the problem of putting a engine on a girls bike. I think that might be my next project.

    That is exactly what it means.
    You could easily build a two-wheel drive motorized bicycle by using a rack style mount on both wheels.

    There was a huge tire bike called a duck that had a separate motor for each wheel. It worked well. I don't see it as a practical bike for most of us.

    And don't forget the Immortal Rokon 2wd motorcycle.
    A mountain goat with handlebars and a seat.

    +1 on the Rokon! I actually owned one, if you could get the tires to stick, it'd climb a telephone pole. Mine was a '72 (I think),
