neato byke. 57mph is plenty fast for a beach community or downtown area, and parking would be a cinch (not that it's difficult with a normal motorscalpel).

Yeah you can change the sprocket size, upgrade carb, hell you could throw a diferent engine in. Fits a 200cc vertical easy. You could also change cdi, bore it out, etc. Thanks

My '69 SL90 did 80 mph with all the trick parts, right before it blew up in a cloud of white smoke and shards of metal. I think they're cool, would be even cooler with a B&S Vanguard V Twin though...
Well for the price you really can't beat it. The parts are all good quality parts, compared to other chinese stuff. Great starter bike for the kiddos, or just goofin off at the races or the rallies. Thanks for looking guys.

"Well for the price you really can't beat it"

Didja ever think of using the 15hp Briggs & Stratton 350cc Vangard V twin? Without the cooling shrouds, it's a pretty neat looking little motor. You could use an in-house built copy of the Cushman 2 speed trans, suicide shift and all (Belt primary). Pretty basic design, sliding gear transmission.
