Motorized Bicycle Ideal Bike Dimensions

One of the most common motorized bike questions I get asked is: Will a 66/80 cc engine kit work on “such-and-such” bike. And often I ask the customer if they can send me a pic through email, or pic-text to determine if the bike is a good viable candidate to convert to an engine assisted bike. In the gallery here I have collected a few pics from around the web to help you determine if the bike you are considering is a viable candidate.

Keep in mind though, these are just general guidelines. If the down tube has an upward curve, as does the Schwinn Sidewinder MB in the gallery, an offset intake tube, like the one shown, can help an over crowding situation…

 

  • Bike dimensions 3 Bike dimensions 3 One look at optimal dimensions.
  • Bike Dimensions 1 Bike Dimensions 1 For a Beach Cruiser, the best dimensions...
  • Bike Dimensions 2 Bike Dimensions 2 General purpose dimensions.
  • Sidewinder 5 Sidewinder 5 Notice the upswing to the lower tube...that's gonna be a problem.
  • Sidewinder 6 Sidewinder 6 Another look at the upswing...
  • Sidewinder 8 Sidewinder 8 And here's where the problem lies...carb won't fit no matter what you do.
  • Sidewinder 7 Sidewinder 7 Nope...just isn't a way to make that work...unless...
  • Offset Intake Tube Offset Intake Tube An aftermarket offset intake tube! Just what the doctor ordered...and just $7 bucks or so!
  • sidewinder 27 sidewinder 27 Yup! Moved that carb just enough to get everything working right...and NO reduced performance.
