    I'm not finished with my current project, but I'm already looking foreward to the next one... I'm thinkin' about using a fourstroke motor from a honda dirtbike... like from an xr 80 or xr 100. Has anyone around here used one of these for a build yet? I'm just thinking about how nice those things would work with the kickstart and a 5 speed transmissions already there! I've seen some used complete and running bikes on my local craigslist for cheap. Any thoughts?

    I'd echo GearNuts opinion about "none of them would qualify for a motorized bicycle...by the law."

    I think that kind of motor would catch the eye of law enforcement more then any other. More then a 79c/99cc predator type IMO. To me reliability and power are the main attraction.
