How about this for a novel scoot. It's an Indian board track replica. Pedal or fire up the 4 stroke 49cc Honda engine. Designed by a great guy in LA. Another replica (Manx) behind it

I have one of these Phat Cycles cruisers begging for a gas engine. I'm thinking disk brakes, flat-tracker bars and a cheap-o kit from one of the vendors at the Motored Bikes forums.



I really like antique motorbikes and mopeds, I can get my vintage ultralight fix for a few hundred bucks.

Go electric with the bike instead. The really well done versions are incorporated into the bicycle look way better than these 2 stroke engines (hub motors are sleek and batteries are shapeable). You'll get a really nice nostalgic yet futuristic thing going, kind of like the how the class model Avanti and Rover cars in the movie "Gattaca" were all electric.

Grantourismo 200

Here is my scoot, It is an 05 vespa gt200l. The bike has a bit of history to it. I purchased it from the original owner who was a musician living in new Orleans when Hurricane Katrina hit. As the story goes he and his dog used this scoot to escape and rode it all the way back to Newport RI. But that's not the end of it, about a year ago the scooter was stolen by punk kids and found abandoned on its side in Providence. He was called and recovered it with out ever putting a claim on it. He then painted it and rode it a few more months before leaving again for new Orleans this time via car. When he returned 4 months later it wouldn't start. I purchased this and a beautiful Peugeot road bike for the bargain basement price of 400 and had it running later that day. The scooter currently has 16k on it and runs perfect. Its a second bike behind my klr but is perfect for errands and I've even ridden it 400 miles in one day. I'm no small guy and it still hauls on the highway.

They do work, I've built several including this one I made for my daughter. Ride carefully. They make a bicycle go faster than it should go.
