This thing is just wild. Complete mind of its own.

Constantly trying to do wheel stands, has the worst understeer known to man and way too fast considering the previous bullet points.

Need a better video to do this justice. I think the attached short clip was the wrong one but too tired to edit right now.

Next step is welding some 4x100 hubs on the rear, motorcycle wheel up front, stretch and rake.. then the 250, turbo and EFI/Methanol conversion.

Think this is going to be repainted red with black frame.

You need to build a leading link front fork for it if you really are serious about using a more powerful engine on it.. Motorcycle fork - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I'll bet that you could turn a very nice profit on that little suicide machine due to the nostalgia a previous owner of one feels for those little machines I was offered $1200 for an early 80s model Honda 70cc Passport 10 years ago as a trade in on a new Honda bike... Here is a link to the only three wheeler, other than a side car rig, I would feel comfortable riding.. As you will see if you check out the link it ends up costing more than a couple of Honda Fits.. Tri-Cars
