I found a thread last night from Crazyhorse where he used this engine on a stretch! Lot of engine for a bicycle! Helpful thread though.
I've mostly been thinking about it and setting aside donor parts.

What I'm pretty well settled on is the use of an inverted Grumman canoe for the body, a 200 CC (or thereabouts) electric start Honda clone linked to a CVT transmission, a motorcycle frame with rear wheel for the rear portion of the drive train. This will be a big project and worthy of long thought before anything is cut, welded, etc. I'd like to be able to run it legally as a motorcycle.
Someday when I grow up I will probably lose interest in toys with wheels, but until then...
