I frequently used this blue bike. (It mainly refers to the past state)

I will install a headlight on this frequently used blue bike.

I will install a headlight on this frequently use blue bike. ( Can this grammatical I wonder?)

Basically these two machines work in the same principle / concept. (Which word is better here pls?)

Hi,

Could you advise to me these grammars, pls

I frequently use this blue bike. (It refers to every day, Yes (future as well), No.

I frequently used this blue bike. (It mainly refers to the past state) Yes, but I sugggest " I used to use this blue bike ....)

I will install a headlight on this frequently used blue bike. Yes. The underlined is a past participle adjective pertaining to the bike.

I will install a headlight on this frequently use blue bike. ( Can this grammatical I wonder?) Answer is No.

Basically these two machines work in the same principle / concept. (Which word is better here pls?) Principle - usually refers to something universal known as fact and law of nature. That is, a principl usually doesn't change. Fire creates heat but also can burn. A concept is an evolved idea, like many modern inventions. With that being said, I would choose " principle", although concept is not wrong based on this simple " machines" context.


Cheers
