Probably the main thing with me is that they look soooo much cooler than all the other engines out there! (looking cool is very important!)
No doubt. But I was looking at a 4-stroke kit, and other than the red cover, they don't look to bad. Those can probably be removed or painted, pinstriped or whatever. The two strokes do look better and I am used to a clutch too. I had a chance to cruise on a 4 stoke and dug it pretty well. My current proj has changed quite a bit due to donations. I got a chicks mt bike, and three weedwacker motors, so I got some figuring out to do. Been reading Deacon's posts for clues and pointers and what not. I think I'm gonna mount it low and use a chain, keep the clutch til it blows up.
