Too much is barely enough.
Wonder if we could shoehorn an RC8 in there?

If you really are up on things you'd realize this looks NOTHING like a board tracker. It looks like Henderson Four that had the engine yanked and some Honda step thru putter stuck in there.

Henderson with big honking frame:



Board tracker, Indian specifically, with frame wrapped tightly around engine:




This was instantly apparent to me.

Make it look like that REAL tracker and you might have something.

I hope they used good quality, long lasting paint on that "J" so it doesn't get rubbed off.

Not counting the original bike, but the others in this thread are pretty cool.

I think I need to create my own bike now. I've got a foundry and a machine shop.. at home.

Well, I liked it. Obviously there's lots of room for improvement. Forks would be the first thing to go, but it's a fun bike, not an artistic statement.

As I said earlier, a Punsun diesel V-twin would be nice in there with a bit of bodging.

I like the concept of the originally posted bike

Granted the pitbike engine is small and it's more of a Henderson 4 type frame than a board tracker... But with all that space I could see it as a platform for all kinds of other engines.
