    A motorbike that i have been working on this summer! Jesse James West Coast bike. Rear of the bike has been widened 2 inches to fit a schwinn stingray rear wheel. It rides really nice but the ape hanger took a little getting used to. Motor is a honda gx160 5.5hp that has been upgraded to make 13hp. The bike cruises real nice at 1/2 to 3/4 throttle and about 60 mph after that it gets a little scary!

    Hope u enjoy my bikes.

    Currently working on a three wheeled industrial bike i should have some pics soon

    What do you think you would do to hop up a Honda GXH50? Same type of stuff? Do you know of a carb that would be an upgrade for a 50cc engine without over-carbing it? I'm thinking of bumping up the compression. Runs perfect on 87 octane and I would gladly buy 93 if much gas as I use.

    Great bike!!!

    you can put any carb on any motor as long as u make or buy a intake tube to match the motor and carb bolt patterns! Check out NR-RACING.COM They have all kinds of mods for honda engines
