    Strength, style, I love it!

    I'm real close to buying one of these bad boys but am concerned about
    how easy it is to install a motor on one of these.
    I know the space is tight but have seen other posts where guys have done it, either with motor
    mounts or cutting and welding in a loop making the space bigger.

    I'm looking at getting a DAX F50 in-frame 2-stroke kit and was wondering if I will have a lot
    of trouble fitting the engine in?

    I run Grubee 80cc engines in the News Boy frame all the time. It is tight but it works just fine.

    Now there's an all-time understatement. This man builds art from Worksmans. Do a search on his bikes, they're just plain awesome. The Newsboys are a rock-solid platform and Sportscarpat has demonstrated that they can be as aesthetic as they are functional.
