    here is the finished product. I wish it was legal because it has all the torque in the world to pull my trailer.... well that and it is a ton of fun.

    I know, I know... the chain is a little loose.

    Wow that brings back memories of my youth. I had one similar to that back in 1974 with a 4hp. Tecumseh. Tons of fun and fast till I defeated the governor, over-revved that bad boy and threw a rod right thru the crankcase at about 30mph. That's one cool ride. I want one but no where to ride it around here. Have a good time on it.

    why not, you can pick one of these up on ebay brand new for around 350 shipped. The clutch, spray paint, and chain was about another 50. Its actually very well made... and its made here in the usa (well the frame is anyways).

    You know, you can always just use the garden hose....
