Now all we need to do is find their engine supplier (^)

Looks like the same bike as this one Mini Choppers V Twin (http://www.happyscooters.com/50cc-4-Stroke-Mini-Chopper-p-226-14fg22.html)

One cylinder is a dummy.

Yep! Airfilter in the 2nd cylinder....

I wondered as much - shame really

Lame. That's just as bad as auto manufacturers welding on a dummy 2nd piece of pipe on the back of mufflers to give it that dual exhaust "look"

Would still be a great starting point for something like a replica board tracker or pre WWI cycle.

It could be but the detail would be poor... most of the pre WW1 machines used a vertical round cylinder - would take alot of work to make the engine look right.

You are absolutely correct about the round cylinder. It would take some work with a grnders, belt sander an polisher, but there's don't seem to be many options out there for a V-twinn look with the round cylinder.

I think I've seen one of these bikes for sale in an autoparts store awhile back. I wasn't paying much attention to it at the time but I remember it having pretty much your standard minibike engine with lots of cheap looking chromed plastic shrouding it to make it look like a harley engine.

I've considered trying to mount a V-twin Honda generator engine on a bike...but they start at 16 hp (610cc) and may be too heavy and the police may have a hard time believing it is only 50ccs;). With the plastic shroud removed, it may look like an early twin.

Anyone else tried something like this?

Thought about it, but to make a real live motorcycle, not a bike. There is a problem with removing the shrouding- namely, it directs the airflow to cool the engine. Probably a better choice is a Lifan 250cc v-twin....but I'll still likely try the industrial v-twin first.

I'm still interested in that motor because of it's looks.
Does it have a built in clutch and transmission, and what not....
I'd like to find out more about it. It's a 50cc two stroke I know so far.
I've seen certain photos of the left side of the engine and there's a name on the case I can't seem to read. "HONSIM" or something like that. I'd like to find the maker of this engine.

Using a V-twin industrial engine is exactly what Ridley uses on their bikes.

I guess it would require a stretch or limo bicycle frame to accomodate it. I'd probably buy an engine with a faux rear cylinder. I had been trying to figure out how to attach a second, empty cylinder on my bike to impersonate a v-twin.
The smallest genuine v-twins I've seen have been the 250cc Lifan or Suzuki Virago.

Do you know of any U.S. suppliers of engines who sell an engine with a faux rear cylinder?

I have seen no US suppliers. You might get lucky and find one at an auto parts store or tool store that sells motorized toys.

I saw some used mini choppers for sale this AM on craigslist with the look-alike 50cc v-twin engine. Thats probably the only way to get one in the US these days.

I'll be building one as soon as engine #2 arrives. I'm pairing up two 25cc weedeaters, connecting them with plates at about a 60 degree V with a common drive. The intakes will be connected and it will run off a single 50cc carb. I'll post photos so if anyone wants to copy the procedure they can follow along. There are a couple challenges but I don't think they're insurmountable.

There are a couple challenges but I don't think they're insurmountable.

Here's a "before" picture with the two motors mocked up together. They are essentially identical but were used in different configurations so the engine cases are not exactly the same. It would have been easier if they were, but I'll work with that I have. The next step will be to make patterns for the connecting plates.

You can see I have them set up so their flywheels are on opposite sides. This puts the intake ports in the middle and will allow for a common manifold and single carb. This also means that their rotations are opposite, the right hand (forward) motor in the picture being the one with rotation the same as the driveline needs to be. So ... the left hand (rear) motor will need a two-gear setup that will turn a shaft in the proper direction below the cases and connect on the drive side. This means the connecting plates will have a place for mounting bearings and the shaft.

I had been looking for a way to add a second, non-operable cylinder for looks.
You are going to build the real thing.

Very cool fish ! I come across motors like these every once in a while for free simply because folks just don't know what they have . A simple quick carb overhaul with a new diaphragm and their back.

I am looking forward to how you overcome these hurdles! Thanks for sharing!
