    I think this engine would fit in a chopper, but way too expensive for a bicycle. But boy, it would be really cool if someone could accomplish something like this. (^) It would be like a Hayabusa bicycle.:D

    I Would Love To Have A Supercharged One But That Would Almost Be 6000 Dollars You Could Build A Real Motorcycle With A V8 For That.

    yeh I was thinking that too, I just saw an 800CC BMW in the weekend paper for less than that.

    But ****, if I had the money I'd have one of those in an instant.

    a 100CC V8, I wonder what it sounds like...

    If money were the deciding factor in everything, The GEO Metro would still be in production and we would all be driving them.

    That is about the most bad motor I could imagine fitting on a bike!
    I gotta dream about it at least!

    Wow! I coulda hadda V-8...

    but I got a china girl "slant 1" instead.

    (And by "slant", I refer to the angle of the cylinder. Thought I better clarify that one!)

    Yeah, but even some people still prefers to ride a motorized bicycle than a motorcycle. Think of it this way: There are bicycles that would cost as much but are not even motorized, yet people buy them. It's like a high end luxury motorized bicycle. It would be like comparing a Ferrari with a Toyota.

    Hey, I know this engine is very expensive, but besides the cost who's going to stop you. I know there are lots of technical guys out there... Maybe we can melt those chinagurls into these things... I hope the chinese will come up with a version of this engine. Maybe we can write to those Chinese manufacturers and specify to make one of these. They're already producing some very good R/C engines, so why not a mini V6 or mini V8 engine. I think if there's a market, they'll manufacture these babies. :D

    how about a mini hemi with displacement on demand so when you idle it only runs four cylinders . (p/s you can buy the real hemi for 5,200) so the mini sould be less

    Look carefully at this old pic.
    Now if you take a shortened Ford 9 inch rear end driveshaft it wouldn't be too hard to drop in a 429 cobra jet with a c6.

    That old pic actually does look like it may have something like a Model T driveline as a knife grinder oh yes.

    I think it should go on a trike. Burning out tires 9 second 1/4 mile?

    You would have to find an incredibly heavy duty bike to mount that engine on... probably in the form of a motorcycle frame, not a regular bike.... =P

    I think a custom stainless steel frame, but if it's really going to be sporty and could afford an engine like this, then a custom titanium frame could do. :D

    This would probably the most expensive luxury motorized bicycle you can use on the streets... :D

    I would still go for a used engine like this...

    I'd settle for a reasonably-priced lightweight V-twin that could fit in a cantilever frame.
