Just curious if anyone ever bought one? I could build one myself of course, but this price seems almost too good to be true, for the full engine?
Don't these need a heavier duty clutch? Is it like 2x the power of a regular PK80 Wildcat kit? I must admit I am lusting after one! Looks like I'd need to purchase a reed valve to go with it. IDK if those can be run without one?
Anyway, very curious, mostly about this specific engine. Seems like to me this would maybe be worthy of all the hassle of a jackshaft and buying a Sturmley Archer internal 5 speed hub. I'd really feel like I was pushing it to run a cassette and derailleur with that much power, but a larger chain with an internal hub might work well!
