Center Mount Bike Motors
There are two primary types of Center Mount Bike Motors:
Center Mount Motor Sizes "CC"
Each of the Center Mount Motors comes in 48CC, 60CC, and 70CC models (CC refers to motor size; the bigger the CC, the bigger the motor size and power). Because so many customers search for terms like "80CC" online, dealers may list ads for an "80CC motor" that is actually a 70CC in order to be found online by potential buyers. For instance, most companies will label or advertise 48CC motors as 50CC or 70CC motors as 80CC. While it makes sense that dealers need to advertise using the same terms/lingo and CC size that customers are searching for, a reputable dealer will properly label actual CC's on the product page at checkout, so there are no unwanted surprises upon delivery. It is our belief that actual CC information should be plainly visible to buyers upon checkout; they should not be led to think they are buying one thing (i.e. "80CC motor") and sold another (i.e. "70CC"). Our recommended dealer, Live Fast Motors, properly labels the size of all of its center mount bike motor kits, products, and parts.
Will the Center Mount Motor Right Work On My Bike?
There are a few important considerations for buyers who are trying to decide between center mounted bicycle motors and rear mounted options, including aesthetics, but of primary importance is whether the bike has enough room for the motor kit assembly in the "V" area of the bike. Traditionally, some classic and standard bike models like Schwinn, Sun, and Huffy "Beach Cruiser" models have consistently proven to meet this space requirement. Many men's mountain bikes also fit the bill, while the configuration of the typical women's mountain bike doesn't have a place to mount the gas tank.
