    I am building a boardtrack racer and am using a worksman bike i'm not sure if I am eventually going to do the whole stretch and droploop thing but for now I am going to keep the frame as is and will be dropping a china girl motor I am really tempted on going with the GP50R I mean 9hp seriously?! and since I found the complete worksman for a real steal ($40!) i think I can afford to spurge a little with the pricetag close to $500 with sipping. anyhow does anyone have any info on this application? will it fit in the smaller worksman frame? it looks as if it is pretty compact but never seen one in person.

    Yes you can MAKE it fit . It will be a lot work ,every thing will have to be fabricated . You need a shop and a lot of skill or lots of money . http://www.sportsmanflyer.com/ he get 2k plus with out motor . Put the china girl in it and ride . Have fun . Dan

    Maybe next time he'll post thrice, then I'll copy n re-post. -just to get your goat!!!

    Anyways, as I mentioned before, if you get yourself a motor from your local harbor freight, some bits n pieces from AGK, then spend a small amour on a local welder (or trade for ink!) You will wind up with a STRONG motor giving you OFF THE LINE ACCELERATION, BEST TOP SPEED, AND WILL BE MUCH MORE DEPENDABLE THAN A CHINA GIRL!
    I'M in the process of selling all my China girls, for as fun as they were-become rather under-whelming!
    And for a boardie, the larger engines, and thumpy sound MAKE ALL THE DIFFERENCE!

    That's great advice but he may have a budget to work with and the china girl is...should I say within the budget.

    If he chooses to go another route I am local and have some nice reliable parts available.

    oooh, now I'm jealous!
    Culver's got mad skills with the scoots, having him close to lend a hand is quite fortuitous indeed, my friend!!
