motorcycle frame size

Is there a minimum diameter or thickness for a motorcycle frame? If so what is it?

No, but weight is not a factor for Bonneville.  Build it like your life depends on it.... it does.

well because I'm building a 2 stroke motorized bicycle for the flats, so I was wondering if I needed to build a new custom frame or not

I suspect the factory frame will pass and be OK for the speeds you are anticipating unless the 2 Smoke is an old TZ.  :roll:
