Obviously there would be...issues...with an RZ motor in this one, but imagine the fun if you could stuff a modern ruckus 50cc motor in it.



Sacrilege, but still a fun thought.
If you can get the shift linkage to work, how about a nice ty250 engine?

That would probably be a nice little motor for this sort of thing!

Grunty, but no lungs. It'd get off the corners in a cloud of tire smoke, and be running about 12mph wound tight to the 2500 RPM redline.

Although, there's a guy out here that welds up the cylinder and then ports them like a modern bike...

EAJ's- you're sick.
