Here are some pics of my project earlier this summer. It was made completely from scratch minus the frontend and the wheels. Its a 5 horse B&S motor that I put a lighter fly wheel on, removed the govenor and added a straight pipe. I won Top Motorcycle at local motorcycle show the day after I painted it.

Cool.
I'd ride it if it had brakes.
What's the cable from the left handlebar do?

I'm not sure about best in show but it's definitely a contender for the "best use of electrical conduit on a motorcycle" award. some neighborhood kid is gonna dig this thing but before he does I'd freshen up the limit on my personal liability policy.
cheers, bcr

Haha you guys are good, those were the three main ingedients: conduit, bike, and tiller. The cable on the left handlebar acted as a clutch that was attached to a belt tensioner. It was only used when stoping and starting the bike.
