Re: Something new and kinda sorta 100 years old looking
Thanks for the suggestions!
I'm gonna take the tin and plastic cover off this motor (yep it's a 4-stroke). I have a lot of aircooled motor experience and I do believe it isn't necessary on a bike, especially if one doesn't let it sit and idle for long periods of time. This will make the motor look better IMHO. I'll probably paint the motor case but not the fins.
A bigger motor would be great but once it gets over 50cc's it becomes a motorcycle in MA. MA also requires an "automatic" transmission, and although I'm pretty sure the one I have is weak and should probably be replaced with something stouter, the 4-stroke did come with the proper trans to satisfy the law.
