Hello everyone i know there are a few old farts around here .Maybe some of you know what a vintage yamaha kt-100 is 2 stroke go kart race motor 100cc 14,500 rpm .I have one lying around cause i have been working on go karts since the last time i was on here (Over a year ago) . I have gotten a few ideas to make my own mount hook up a gas tank a clutch to the motor the chain to the rear sprocket (Has to be either 35 chain or 219 ) .They will push 70-100 on a race kart frame with some good tweaking and some good frame prep i think it would be a nice drag bike .

Yes... the KT 100 engine would make for a really fun ride on a bicycle, just make sure you don't go cheap on the frame or wheels. This is the easy part if you can weld and own a welder tho...
You'll definitely want some good brakes to go with a build like this as well.

I have seen a KT 100 mounted in a stretch bicycle at one of the Willow Springs races.
