One question: WHY?
This is a bicycle, what the heck are you going to do with 125cc's?
My bike, The Iron Dragon has twin 43cc 2.2hp Mitsubishi engines. With one engine, I had to ride the sidewalks and bike paths. With two engines, I claim the lane.
I'm upgrading to a 6hp 169cc Robin engine.
I want more power, silly guy.
What am I using 169cc for?
I commute daily among thousands of cars. I need to claim the lane with quickness and maintain 35 mph speed, like the thousands of mopeds here.
With 35-50cc and 1.25 hp to 2.5 hp, go ahead and crawl along the road's edge until some inattentive clod runs you into the gutter.
