Don't know, had three engines shipped over some years ago from Bangkok to Shanghai.
As far as I know the Honda Nice 110cc -Thailand- engines (carb version) have been discontinued but parts are readily available.
Always a possibility to start with a set of engines cases (Honda / Takegawa) and start a custom hi-po engine build from scratch.

Yes but buying quality in the first place pays in the end….

See my signature line, some ride reports from our side of the world but nothing with "mini bikes" as they do not leave my eyesight, easily stolen and carried away….

Yes, correct, crazy mad tuning parts available for Honda Dax / Monkey bikes and the Honda NSR's as well, pricey but worth every cent….

As initial project startup engine installing a Quickfoot QF128 (128cc) MIC = Made In China engine and not sure about later on but seriously thinking about a Takegawa Desmo based engine.

Playing around with different carbs, custom fabricated stainless steel inlet manifolds and some of our other custom parts.
Most probably will use the Keihin PE28 (Daytona pre-set) and HM Inlet Manifold (stainless steel) again.
A bikers work is never done....

























Found a original 50cc engine inlet manifold and comparing to a stainless steel 28mm inlet manifold ~ well, there is a difference…

Nissin front and rear brake calliper, the rear calliper needs some milling to fit into the rear wheel. Stainless steel brake calliper brackets arrived as well.

Well ~ picking up on the Supermoto project again due to crappy weather and watching NitroCircus with #199 Travis Pastrana and the Nitro-Crew…
Rooting through the extensive bike parts arsenal brings out some good ones for test fitting.
Checking to fit Honda NSR50 fork (55mm shortened and fitted with Takegawa pre-load adjusters), G-Craft Tripple Trees (55mm offset), G-Craft Headlight Brackets, G-Craft Fork Stabilizer, Bitubo Shocks, G-Craft Alloy Swingarm, etc...etc....
