Default Re: Honda elite scooter engine on a bike?

i have two piaggio 150cc's. one is a vespa.
i use to take I95 every day.
i once got passed by a a honda helix. he had to be doing 80-85mph & weighed in about 350-400Lbs.
his scoot was like 3 times older than mine & probably cost him a third.
boy, did he look happy.
when people ask me what type of vehicle to get. be it car or scooter. i tell them to go with a with a company that makes engines for everything.
like honda, piaggio, toyota,vw,ect.
it is all about engineering.

there is a lot of good info on how to work with the honda elite/helix engines.
don't let the cc's fool you. there is much more power than a a 60cc china girl. too much power for a bike. unless a complete frame is made.
