    I finally finished my motorized chopperbicycle and i must say i'm quite pleased with the outcome. I bought the motor mounts on line from someone down the US and proceded to mount the motor, it took alot of twigging and modifications because of the frame beying different from regular "V" shaped frames but overall it woked out fine, i even installed brake ligh, turn signals, blininking back light and the latest i added a solar front headlight which i had from the garden and it looks like it was made for the bike it fits so well and now i'm working on a solar pannel charging system to charge up the batteries of the rear lights. I wish i could post a picture to show it off but i don't know how to post it but if anyone is interested i would appreciate telling me how to post a picture will be appreciated. Thanks for all your help.
