    If only they had used a vintage milk crate. Boy, that just ruined it for me...

    Looks like a big two stroke, but it also looks like it may have a Honda logo and I don't think Honda makes 2 strokes anymore. Think weed eater on steroids.

    Yup, Honda OHC 4 stroke .. either a GX 25 or 35 .. for as much work as the owner did with the conversion, I'd assume the 35cc engine..

    The way this overdone bike looks like, I don't know why the pedals were even left on after the refit.

    The poor kitties would not stand for all that noise and exhaust that engine would put out. I know I would not have. I wish the owner would have left the bike alone.

    I like it ...... I wouldnt built one or use one like that, but its done very well.

    And for the folks who raise their noses at such motor driven bike.... this will probably be as quiet as a car and will probably have 100 miles a gallon reach... versus a 6 miles per gallon gas guzzler.
    Or some fancy schmanzy electric car which gets the needed juice from a coal- plant somewhere on the other side of the mountain..!!!

    Great job in building this ...
    for style points I would paint the engine green and matte black and get a nice wicker basket for the front....
