    well it's a fun looking little motor bike

    not motorized bicycle -- but -- motor bike

    with no pedals and a multi speed trans

    will not be what most are looking for here

    but for sure -- who wouldn't want that THING

    It looks "fun-sized" the same way they "fun-size" candy bars....I'm not "fun-sized".
  5. You'd be missing out on one of the best parts of the experience... building it. If you get into it you can really get creative. It also really helps when it comes time to diagnose and fix (that day WILL come). On the other hand, you could still get creative and be the first to transform a motor bike into a motorized bicycle (welding will be necessary).

    Last year my girlfriend and I took a trip to Moab Utah to go Mountain Biking. There was a guy on the slickrock trail on one of these and it climbs like a goat. He was also doing some trials stuff on it in the parking lot. It looked very well built and extremely capable.

    Yes it looks like a blast to try. I like the fuel tank set up. Also, it looks like it has stopping power with front/rear disk brakes.

    Not sure welding would be necessary, there are 4 heavy threaded bosses on the bottom of the Honda engine cases that are used to hold the footpegs on. I'm thinking maybe a steel tube housing the bearings and crank spindle that just bolts on???
