It's almost ready to go! All Pipelyne needs is the pipe and the carb.
5.8hp stock. It's definitely will be higher when Dean gets done massaging the motor!
Any thought?

Re: The Italian Stallion FINISHED!

Well, here's the finished project. I was really surprised how well it ran and the top end on this bike was crazy. I feel it was hitting between 45-50 with a 47 tooth sprocket.

The low and mid was a little faster than my bike but once the pipe kicked in...it was "C YA" Once Pipelyne changes the stock metal reeds to carbon fiber of fiberglass reeds. I'm sure it will totally rip on the low-mid range. I was impressed on how stable the bike was at top speed.

Just wanted to know what the motor was. If its over 2hp its not legal in Nebraska or most states without plates. This bike is not legal at 2.2 hp and its only 43cc.

The way I look at it is...if a peace officer pulls you over and you say its a 1.5 hp 40cc motor, does he have the tools and time to figure out if your lying?
Plus a good rule of thumb is: Slow down and cruise 15 mph when you see a peace officer.:D
Over here, they leave us alone as long as we aren't riding like A holes. We ride fast but obey the law and wear our full face helmets.
