I think the Hellion project may be what I'm wanting anyway! I keep looking at all the stuff available for the GY-6 engines... I don't have a scoot yet, but I'm already building the engine for one in my head. And you guys are right, my bad, it's an Elite 150 and the Helix 250... I've found both for under $1000 and there's a Chinese copy of the Helix still being made. It's supposed to be pretty good. I just traded around and got a Honda Accord as a project car... think I may just put it up on the block to finance a new scoot. I seldom drive anyway and with cold weather coming up it would be nice to have some wind protection!
