i have a 2015 raliegh route 3.0 i want to put a motor on i looked at alot of forums and decided for the price ill take my chances with a cheap ebay kit and upgrade it if and when it breaks i found a "80cc" kit from china or something but fter looking i dont know if it will fit in my frame, worst case scenario i put it in my 2007 diamond back sorento because i know that will fit, but id prefer the raliegh since its a much nicer ride

i measured it i think the raleigh is just like 1/2 an inch short ive seen 66cc and 50cc kits too would they be a little smaller dimensions or are 80ccs just the same block bored out?

80 and 66 is the same engine, just a matter of china cc measurements and US standards or cc's .........Curt

The 50cc and 66/80cc are the same size, the diameter of the cylinder and the stud size are different. The covers, gears and parts all interchange.

Looking at pictures of your bike model you'll have a tight fit, it all depends on the type of front mount you use and which type mount was cast in the engine. The cylinder head can be rotated 180° to clear the sparkplug if needed. You can also get a offset intake so the carb won't hit the seat bar.
