Chapter 2, Fabricate face and rear motor mounts
I then decided that the best option to mount the motor would adding two plates to the swing-arm mount. Using cardboard I mocked up where the motor would be sitting and made templates. I was sure to include the chain tensioner and spring mounts (see next chapter) I then cut them out with cheap 1/4″ thick particle board to ensure all was correct.
Using a jigsaw, patience, clamps, and a hole-saw I cut the mount out!
I then had to drill large 3/8″ holes through the frame and long bolts for extra stability and structure that the engine previously provided.
Here is the REAR motor mount. It is basically the same as the front mount but cradles the motor with a high temp rubber edge, and a high strength hose clamp to ensure it engages and seats in the mount via wrapping around a stud at the apex of the cradle.
