ECCB, cool little bike and if the motor on your weed wacker gives up the ghost, you could make a fast repair by installing the bike motor in the weed wacker. Zoom Zoom

Well now this one actually has a bigger engine than my chainsaw @ 65cc

I ended up doing a bit of sanding and dremeling to the original head and then shot it with the VHT Flameproof header paint in flat black. Looks great, and its running really well with the current setup.
Its topping out close to 50 now. Going with a bigger front sprocket today or tomorrow and should see a few more mph.

Years back, my Yamaha drag bike was 1314cc-and my Datsun street car was only 1200!

What a thread!

Some gems on here!
I might have pics of my old '07 yamaha zuma i had while in KW, then in Miramar....after i sold it, I was seriously considering an Aprilia MP3 400.
That thing looked as if it was out of a sci-fi movie!
Instead, under my brother's influence, i bought a '11 HD Sporty Iron.
Love every minute i ride it!

Back home we always had a Piaggio "Si" 50cc...my brother and i always modified the little motor to 75cc, change pulley and rollers with performance parts...fun stuff...
I'd give my left testicle to have an old Lambretta!!!!

Great pics on here, everyone!

Well, i was born in Chicago, but grew up in S.Italy...I don't like to say "I'm from Italy", because i feel more american than i feel italian.
But yeah, i grew up in italy.

I used to love our Si. Even though i envied my buddies with the "new era" scooters...the Booster, typhoon, NRG...then you had the old schoolers with supped-up vespas that would smoke a honda 250 2cycle lol
