    You'll probably get a lot of different opinions on this, but I'd go with a rear mount chain drive Honda GX50. If it breaks, engine parts should be relatively easy to find. Select a good gearbox and a sprocket hub adapter to take the strain off the spokes. Size the petrol tank to meet your needs. I can't help you with UK suppliers, but the Honda is a worldwide engine and you'll find a local supplier.

    It sounds like a lot of fun. I toured Europe by motorcycle in 1983 and had a blast.

    Although I don't like rack mounting, But I'd choose the Honda also. Good reliable engines, world wide parts if need be.

    cost of shipping to Brittain

    Small engine warehouse did return a response to my question abt overseas shipping cost. NOT inexpensive!
    Probably a bit over $150us.
    They were unable to advise regarding import duties that may be applicable.
