That's the plan at this point. I had a little mini bike (a few pages back) with one in it, and it has plenty of "go" haha

They are so dirt cheap. Just over $100 for a brand new motor out of the box. Cant complain about that much

Predator engine then?  Is there off the shelf clutches and stuff that fit up easily?  I'd love to make something but limited by time currently (kids and stuff..ha)

yeah, anything that is made for a 3/4" straight shaft. I had a centrifugal clutch on the mini bike, but this one will have a cvt setup similar to whats on a snowmobile

Nope lol I won't. I sat on it during mockup and it made some pretty nasty cracking sounds. A wood framed mini bike would be pretty sweet though

Well don't make it out of balsa wood. We could make it happen.
