    Just for fun anyone put a gas motor a MTB?

    And had great success? Just wanted to do this to an old bike I have for utility purposes.

    I like my bikes too much to do something that dumb to them.

    Sorry to revive this thread, but saw this pict today (British vintage drag-racing site) and could not resist:


    Not a bike really, but a pretty spindly M/C. Guy name Mal Hawkins piloted this 50% nitro/50% methanol-fueled 50cc Honda-engined "Red Barron" to a 19.8 second quarter mile

    There's always the Whizzer! A co-worker has a 1947 Whizzer that is a blast to ride! It's a death trap with only a coaster brake to stop and it weight 90 lbs but it is a blast!

    I remember seeing a motorcycle article a couple of years ago on a company that made an Ultra light weight dirt bike that looked somewhat like a Mountain bike. I believe it weighed around 90-120 pounds.
    It looked very interesting. Tried searching for it online recently, but found nothing.
