Had to narrow up the handle bars so it will fit in the van, funny shape but will work.

Thanks guys but they frown on riding anything motorized on the bike trails here though if under so many CC`s is legal you`ll get harassed by some ignorant people.
If i ever did convert it i think i would go electric then they wouldn`t hear it running and ya could fake peddling as ya go by them. :)
