    search ebay for occ motor mount and look at barry's :)
    I have used 9-10 of them and have never had any problem
    he makes a LOUD chopper pipe as well
    ...you need the mount to offset the engine so you can clear that fat back tire :)
    manic mechanic (sponsor- ad top right)makes an excellent sprocket mount as well
    hope that gets ya started !!!

    eighty cutty,
    Welcome to the forum. You've selected a challenge for your first bike but there are many here who have built the occ chopper into motorized bicycles. You'll probably hear from several of them in the next couple of days. If you have questions just ask and someone will give you advice. AZbill and Cabinfever hve already steered you in the right direction for parts you'll need for that little bike. Have fun.
    Tom

    so whats the most common motor used. i weigh in the 200 lb range and dont want to be under powered.
    see a lot of 48-49 cc but would the 66/80 be to much?

    The larger displacement engines have a tad more bottom end torque but for the most part there isn't a great deal of difference in the engines. At your weight you might want to go with the bigger one but there are lots of 49s carrying as much or more weight than you. By the way here's a link you might find interesting. http://motorbicycling.com/f3/blueprints-occ-stingray-motor-mount-10210.html
