    Very nice, thankyou. That thing has character and a good sound. I think it has a lot of torque, even coming off idle. Thanks again.

    30mph, at 2000 RPM..... so if its got the muscle it sounds like he can probably do 60 on it. Wow. Scary Fast!

    Even if he used the jug from the old 1200cc Volks engine, and assuming the same stroke, he has 300cc. That should furnish some torque, and hp if he revs it up. I'm sure the induction system isn't up to modern standardsm, but with 300cc's 60 mph sounds realistic. Sides, it sure looks and sounds cool. :bowdown:
