    No replies on the Predator.

    Speaking of motors we dragged out this old four cycle motor today and stripped it down with intentions of using it in my board track bicycle build.
    I think it will be to heavy plus the carb is pretty wore out.

    There are two fill plugs so that one motor can work for various applications where one fill plug may be blocked.

    to angle the motor any way but as it comes you need to disable the oil level sensor (which you should be doing anyway. get it done while you're working on the governor) and level the carb by installing a custom intake plenum. the stock carb is super tiny anyway so go ahead and replace it with something a buttload bigger for a couple of extra horses

    Thanks skyash and butre, I haven`t decided if that`s the engine for what I want yet but thanks for the info.
    I`m looking for a engine that has the old look.

    Now I`m getting some where, put a Mikuni on it and it runs great, also added some fake push rod tubes for looks.
    When I start the build I`ll start another build thread.

    Sorry about that guy that got hurt, no worries from a guy that`s been riding Harleys for 45 years, I`ve layed a Harley down at 80-100 mph that wore threw the back of my helmet and both shoulders of a AF flight jacket.
    Ain`t gonna worry about a hot muffler, ain`t going to get one of those engines anyway, brought the engine pictured above back from the dead and putting it in a ground up build.

    His prose may be, uh, extra stylish, but he does have a point. This really not a motor for a bicycle. It's a genuine motorcycle engine and would fit much better on a real motorcycle frame.

    212cc isn't even close to legal. Ideally, you find a old motorcycle frame, small on a real tranny and jump the hoops to license it as a motorcycle.
