I've done some research, and yes, a gas engine can be mounted, but it's not advisable for 2 reasons: 1. It would void your warranty; 2. It would, under Florida law, RECLASSIFY your bike as a MOTOR VEHICLE, which requires a driver's license and registration. As for electric motors, which, under both state AND Federal law, do NOT require a license or tags, they, too, can be mounted on your bike. However, since the front fork is NOT pure steel (it's made from an alloy), hub motors may pose some risk of fork breakage from high torque, and may also void your warranty. But if you MUST use an electric motor, your best bet is a tire-friction driven system, which (though not as fast as a hub motor) is easier to install (does NOT require tire and wheel removal/replacement, but DOES require removal of either the front or rear fender, depending on where the motor/friction drive is mounted), and is somewhat more economical. Hope this info helps! ;-)
