Default Re: Harbor Freight 212cc on Motoped Cruzer?

My point exactly! Your bike is one of the most awesome builds ever, with the race credentials to back it up. In my opinion it borderlines on art. That's why I couldn't believe you of all people would tell someone with a dream of creating something truly unique not to waste their time and money doing it. When I built my 1st Motoped I didn't want to be like the rest of the sheeple running those heavy E-22 clone motors with clunky transmissions, I wanted more. More horsepower or more torque. Initially I was going to go big horsepower with a 45hp XR50 motor but changed my mind and went with a high torque setup instead. I'm pretty pleased with the 180ft lbs of torque my Motoped makes, it's a blast to ride and I personally don't give a rat's a$$ if anyone thinks I wasted my time and/or money.
