Default Re: Felt MP with 6.5+hp engine hidden in rear of a sidecar?

Didn't see too many passengers on that thing....
All I'm building is a glorified pusher cart for the engine. Instead of the pusher cart being behind the bike, it will be bolted to the side of the bike. The go kart frame is the obvious choice because the seat, frame, engine mount and drivetrain are already proven. It's form following function. What could possibly go wrong at 50+mph as long as I don't hit a pothole? LOL
