YamaGeek is again dead on with his assessment of the Lifan motors. I have a buddy who's had several and they've proven to be stone reliable as well. The Chinese Honda clone motors have proven to be an excellent and affordable replacement for Honda motors. You see a lot of Mini Trail "restorations" with Lifan motors and Honda sidecovers--it's a lot easier to simply buy a brand-new motor than to rebuild a worn-out thirty or fourty year old Honda and far more cost efficient.

YamaGeek's Lifanha is probably the coolest Lifan conversion I've seen yet. One unique ride!!! (A picture here would be great.)

A recent picture would be embarrassing it's had a couple of rough visits with the Coastal Oregon Anodizing Fairy

The LifanHaHa in shinier times..

After coming back from WetFest '08. I started that trip from home with about 3090 on the odometer.

I'm considering a 125cc engine for my C102, I hate to convert it but the 'original' engine was cobbled together from some older worn old bits, and it barely does 35 mph.

Yea JeffS77, I have finally found that you are right. You can not get any dirt bike registered for street use here, unless it is a dual sport. It really sucks. The guys I met that had them must have done it before the new laws or had a sneaky way to do it. I might just buy one of those old street legal Z 50s or maybe even a new Lifan powered trial clone. Thanks for the info.
