That little engine might make a good trolling motor if you rubber mount it in your boat..

Clutch came in today.


My ocd forced me to draw an Autocad template to lay out the new engine mount holes. Had to move about 5/8" to line up the sprockets.






Fired her up, and the first hard Crack of the throttle ended up with me sliding off the seat and ghost riding the mini bike across the yard. More torque than I was expecting lol. Pretty wicked little thing.

These types of bikes on CL.  Been looking for a pit bike and a small 50cc for the girls for a while, but now I'm actually paying attention to the ads for these.  Looks like a hoot.

It's a blast dude. Picked it up for $70. Harbor freight motor on sale for $80 and a $20 clutch. It's too much fun for 170 bones
