    I have the original grips. Do you suggest this set up as an upgrade?

    No, not an upgrade. Use whatever grips you prefer. Grips become a personal preference unless you are trying to be factory correct.
    The grips that come with it work fine however.

    Maybe I will just go with a 48 or 50 inch and cut it. Thanks

    Looks good as long as your twist grip is in good shape and works freely.

    Welcome to T-Bird world. If you're intent on this being for your 11 yr old, keep the H35 on the bike as that was the original size engine. The large rear wheel sprocket is best suited to that size engine. This bike is prone to wheelies even with the H35. A Predator or Honda engine of more than 4 hp will be too much for an 11 yr old (even a 58 yr old like me) unless you change out that rear sprocket to a 60t. Definitely add a clutch brake. I made up a girdle to brace the engine plate rather than welding anything on the plate. The girdle locked the engine in place. Here's my build start to finish:
