Hey guys i was just wondering, and this may sound stupid to most of you but. Is it at all possible to put a bike rack on a BMX bike? Just wondering because i was contemplating converting a BMX into an electric BMX. Any feedback would be appreciated.

Like a basket or something?
There are many companies that make seat post mounted bike racks. Here is one.

Yeah! something like those seat post mounted ones. Do you think theyd fit on a BMX? i thought there may be some sort of difference between a BMX and other bikes that wont allow a rack to be mounted. Just need something to hold the battery.

Unless you have one of those with some weird setback built in a seatpost is a seatpost is a seat post. As long as the clamp dia matches the seat post dia you should be good to go.
Dans Comp shows the seat posts I looked at to be 25.4mm diameter. That seat post mounted rack says it goes from 25mm to 31.8 mm, so it should fit. If it does not match, you can shim it to fit. Dans comp sells seat post shims that you might be able to adapt to this use. Best of luck.
