HONDA 160cc Cruiser with pedals

M y next project.
painted 2 todays ago,
built yesterday,
and decided today to use a Honda 160 cc 4 stroke overhead cam engine in a frame mount.
Will have to extend pedals appox. 2 inches on either side but will fit in my cruiser frame perfectly otherwise

Love the cruisers.

What model Honda have you used?

Would be great to see progress pictures during the build especially the crank extension.

I had to remove my mud guards as they rattled off so it may pay to loctite them on:D
Very Wild in the streets! How are you going to cover the right (fan) side of the motor?

I can't wait to see the rest of the details! Very nice so far
Crank extensions

The widest 1 piece crank (Grubee) is just under 8 inches between pedals. I have modified one to be 11 inches by extending just one side. You could do this to both sides of one & it would be about 14 inches. I had several EXPERTS tell me that this would break. Check out Zombie Zenas crank. It is 12 inches between pedals. I started with 2 stock cranks & cut/welded on both sides. It has lasted for over a year with no prob. LOTS of MILES too. When faced with this delima I looked into a custom three piece crank the widest one is a downhill set up at just under 7 1/2 inches. With that wide motor you got I would get 2 Grubees & chop one in half / cut the arms off the other & weld both sides. Otherwise you have to machine a custom axle & make your own 3 piece. I'll post some pics of this mod on Z Zacks thread later next week.
