Cool Re: honda cr80 engine

my nickname is of course im nuts! haha!
front and rear disks i think would stop it.
ive considered the vibrations and clearances on the chain stay.
the frame could be reinforced with steel plates that wrap around integral welds like around the head tube and bottom bracket to seat post and chain stays.
while thinking about the radiator mounting i could only come up with two choices. one would be the underside of the down tube or in front of the handlebars...banshee style...i always thought banshees looked a little odd though.
the other issue would be the 27inch tires...i know they make some kevlar high pressure tires for road bikes but 60+ on a 1.25 inch wide tire seems sketch!
im no expert but i would assume a 212cc predator vibrates just as much.
this is not a start of a build...just throwing around ideas for my second build which i will start next summer. not gonna build another china girl, i want more power!!!
