    Honda GX 120 in a new DB?

    I was also going to mention the throttle stop. I think that is one of the best ways to control the speed limits of a mini for younger riders. What's nice is that it applies to any size of engine, the 6.5 hp as well. That being said, there is nothing wrong with a 4 hp Honda engine. I had...

    New little project to waste money on

    Mmmm, C-10 with baby moons...yummy! Yes, you can't go wrong with one if there is little to no rust. The only thing those old trucks lack is good A/C :laugh: But you can stuff just about any engine in there you like. I may do a V8 S-10 in the near future, but so many guys build them that I...

    DoodleBastard - DoodleBug Engine Swap

    Wow, this is looking like an excellent project on my kind of budget: virtually free!! I have often thought about putting in a 200cc motor and I sometimes scour Craigslist for a wrecked bike or parts bike, but I am dreaming right now since I do not really need another motor. Heh, maybe my...

    New Doodlebug, Predator, Paint...Equals Pit Bug

    Wow, the Pit Bug sure turned out nice! Yes, I will echo what was said--you have built a thing or two in the past. :laugh: I like mods and thanks for the photos--makes everything come alive for sure. My guess is that as you start to ride the thing you will modify it further--starting with...

    nova coming home

    Any idea of what it will do in the 1/4 mile? It sounds healthy to be sure. Nice little ride.

    Lets see your modded out Doodlebugs.

    There is something sexy about this bike--perhaps the 'ratness' about it? I'm not sure, but everything just works here. Nice balance.

    Lets see your modded out Doodlebugs.

    I'm guessing the forks and wheels are from a Baja? It's an interesting combo that I didn't think would work if that's what this is. Just gives me some ideas!

    Old DB30 vs New DB30

    To my knowledge the new ones are 100% Chinese made (unless they are now outsourcing back to us for parts...). I don't know that there is anything that is similar other than that they have two wheels, a seat, engine, etc. They are different animals by the same name. Unless someone who knows...

    x18 rear wheel fit db30?

    The X18 has the following size wheels and tires: The front tire is a 15 inch tubeless high-performance racing tire measuring 90/65-10 while the rear tire is a 16 inch tubeless high-performance racing tire measuring 145/50-10. Those are 10 inchers on that DB? They look like 8 inch wheels, but I...

    Paint

    The black always looks good on a DB; I also like the fenders silver--contrast is good and breaks up a field of color. Although mine is still red, I painted my fenders flat black and that combo looks pretty good too.

    J B Kart

    Well, you certainly will with that kind of an engine. There is a reason why the motorcycles are built with the quality and engineering they have--the first and foremost reason is the amount of horsepower and torque they produce. A kart hardly falls into the same category of engineering...

    J B Kart

    Funny, but I had the Gixxer kart in mind when I was making that post above yours. Truly insane, but not manageable--it looks like it could kill you very quickly. Have race track? , will make one! It's like building a kit car and contemplating the install of a top fuel motor. It's insane.

    J B Kart

    Shoot, I think putting a 250 in there would be asking for trouble, so just what do you mean by "big?" Like a 600 cc engine or something?? Believe me, a 250 would be more than enough and you can still manage the exhausts and fuel easier than a 3 or 4 cyl larger engine. If you do put in a...

    Carb change

    Wicked looking kart. Let us know how it runs when you fire it up! Would you try it with ice on the streets? :wink:
