Might not be some people's favourite but I'm going to ride it across Oz.
See how it goes...
Sounds like a late model engine is the go, which model is best for donor Donk?
I'm going for a towbar/trailer, no luggage on this sleek machine....
I don't know about swapping the engine but those early K-bike engines were pretty good candidates for turbo charging. IINM, Lufty and maybe San Jose were into that technology back-in-the-day and thier suppliers is still around building Beemer turbo systems.

Of course, with a turbo there'll be even more heat to roast you legs and private parts but who cares?
