joe- i LIKE the 'happy-time' reference, no matter who coined it. thats why i stole it.Please, please don't call them happy times- HT sure, but the original "happy time" designation was a derrogitory remake and name put on them by someone who is no longer a motorized biker, but a shill for a certain company. The same person started a bunch of crap about how our China fire kits were illegal and blah blah blah.
You're more than likely right, however one thing i know, here in the UK, to register a bike it needs the manufacturers name, which jiangdu print, that engine however doesn't, may or may not be an issue in the USofAP.S., the flying horse fandango co. is not a great source of info, more like feeding propoganda horse motor co.
EPA sticker = a 486/66 computer and an old laser printer.Here is a pic of the Flying Horse/ RAW engine by a representative of the factory, from another thread, that states this is what a "legal" EPA sticker looks like. I really didnt pay much attention to the sticker as I did the quality of the casting of the engine. The first thing I noticed was the misformed and bent fins, then the hole in the cylinder near the intake, from improper casting. I told the Rep. that if this was represenative of an EPA approved RAW engine, I would rather have an unapproved engine.
