    Honda v45 Magna, thats a 750cc. Shaft Driven and liquid cooled would make a wicked nice saw mill build. Maybe you could do that and then sell it for some serious motorcycle project money.

    dad let us by a bonanza minibike frame and forks we designed and built or own design(mostly dad but he always explained shit to us and made always the drawings and plans)a simple telescopic spring fork using the bonanza rigdid fork as the basis
    4hp briggs and sraten horizontal crank recoil start
    again the math and the drawings
    we built it with an eye in dads mind to keep speed down,it went by calculations 20mph at 3600rpm
    a jackshaft enabled the greater than normal reduction we built it from scratch... i was already turning parts in out lathe
    not exactly motogp but man that beauty would outclimb all the minibikes ..with 2 kids on board
    maybe a minibike do not count but 3 years latetr i had my first motorcycle ..

    Just so you guys know, It isn't a Magna, it is a Sabre and therefore, isn't quite as hacked as you might think. To me the question is whether the engine has decent compression and the carbs are salvageable. I think I could make something fun out of it.

    I one found a shopping cart at the bottom of a lake and my brother and I thought we could make a go-kart out of it. In the end we had a fun wheeled sled for hills at our local park. On the other my brother had to get stitches in his right hand, and we both had to get a ton of tetanus shots. Keep in mind we both already had a real go-kart, and a couple of pedal cars that weren't at the bottom of a lake that we could have salvaged parts off of for the same purpose without the hospital trips. anything is possible, but just because something seems like it would be a good time, doesn't always mean the cost associated justifies that fun.
