Ok, so my 24' A/T is on the way.

So I'll be first posting bone-stock pictures and sharing my experience of the bike and (hopefully not) post about customer support.

I will then eventually buy and do a "stage" 1.5 of a Wildcat 223 engine, and will post photos of how I wedge that monster in there.

Aiming for 10HP, 65MPH top speed and reliability when cruising, also planning on not letting it kill me.

Mind you I only have time for big projects on the weekends.

Got the bike, engine is a day away.
Welds look good, paint looks good, fork looks great but feels cheap (wobble in bore).
Brakes are hydraulic and feel very strong.
Wheels are true, bearings feel good.

Chain WAAAY too tight, but what is hilarious, they installed the 44T sprocket which is supposed to be a $100 option, so either I lucked out and got the wrong bike, or they are trying to rob people of their $100.

Rear rotor is freaking massive.

Overall the bike feels like a "top shelf" bike at Walmart, there's no fooling it's a $1,000 frame, but it doesn't feel like it's made out of tin foil and melted down barbie dolls.

Rode around for a minute, gearshift works, bike feels huge compared to my hyper.

Can't wait to try out the stock engine!

Update - got the engine, clutch smashed yay.

So the "fingers broke on the sprocket allowing it to push into the bell.
A couple minutes with the welder and I'm good PXL_20240131_120309270.jpg

The bike ran great, but bad lugging because of it's lack of power and my 300lbs body, so bad I discontinued riding due to the vibration.

Ok, chopped up the engine. I think we're golden.

Waiting on 415 sprocket and need to find angled brass fitting.

Installed angled valve cover.

Chop and weld the header

Sadly I found the 224 is 1/2” wider than the 212 so the T/C jackshaft will not line up.

I believe this will work, but I wanted to avoid stressing the frame, I can weld aluminum, but I'm not that great at it.

Here we are, finished product, just need to tidy up and install lighting system.

Holy crap dude, I'm not mounting a 455 in there!
It will be faster with a 455 oldsmobile in it!🤣😂🤣 Supposedly a 212 will bolt to the factory phatmoto 80cc engine mount. I had to just throw that mount out there. It's such a nice thought out mount with a jackshaft mount built into as well.

Definitely cool, but I'm running a CVT and $280 is steep for it's function.

There are a few ways to mount these, some say you need to hog out it's mount others tilt them, others mount them backwards.

I'd like not to have to chop up an engine, but I'm definitely not using the frame rail jackshaft.
