Okay, I rode my China powered bike for a few weeks and had fun but for an old hot rodder it just didn't have the suds to really grab me so I had to do something. I had this nice little injected small block sitting on a stand in my garage and...well...it was just too much of a temptation.
I've got the rack mount all worked out now all I need is some advice on how to get roughly 360 horsepower to that rear wheel. Anyone have any suggestions?

Well if you had a rear view mirror I'd say all you need is some of those fuzzy dice!

I would go with a straight up propeller on that one. Might be a lot of torque for a 415 chain. Could always go belt drive though.

(Snork, snork. Can I copy that pic? Pretty awesome)

I thought it was pretty obvious. Vertical shaft drive. You're gonna have to use up the whole front triangle for the gas tank, though. It will make a good trencher to bury satellite TV cable.

Here's a trike just waiting for that engine, though.

I think we have the parts for that. If not I got a hacksaw and a file.....oh those are for jail escape.......


I think if we can't make a blower work, then the turbo bike guy can help you out.
