It is a 50cc bike. The power that the engine would put out would be having a hard time moving the frame along let alone a rider on top.

Buy a larger engine for it if you want a real power boost. I have seen engines as larger as 300cc that fit into that chassis.
I'm not sure, but don't ask Brodie.

Way to many build and half done projects to list here.

Yep I visited the cafe racer shop, very knowledgeable.

However I just drove across Brisbane... 4 times.. and it was a 50cc Ace, and I initially had issues understanding you need to feather the clutch in first when you start on a hill, otherwise it will get bogged down and cut out, even stopping at lights just ride the clutch a little until you get going, don't just drop it, but she should happily climb a hill at about 15-25ish kph in first(down from neutral) and sometimes you might get it to second if its not too steep.

there is a restrictor in the inlet manifold .      take off the carby and manifold , then remove the restrictor from the inlet .
also the hose that goes to the manifold can also be blocked off ,  remove it and put a piece of tape over the tube    / fitting  coming out of the manifold and then put the hose back on  .
It will still be slow but we have to start somewhere .
