Thanks for the link! It sure looks the part, but unfortunately I am limited to a 50cc engine. Anything over 50cc and the bike will be classified as a motorcycle - I don't have a bike license and getting one is a costly affair over here.

Having it classified as a motorcycle will also make it a lot harder to get it on the road. It's a PITA enough as it is now.. I'll have to build and test the bike here in the Netherlands to British standards, ship the thing to the UK, have it tested and registered there and then 'export' it back home all to circumvent Dutch regulations that have made it pretty much impossible for home-built mopeds to get registered..
