Predators are made for mini bikes
Just throw one in. Fits perfectly

I was thinking something like this...
Tires are about 20". If the engine is at axle level the bottom of the engine is 10" off the ground. The seat height is 30" so maybe the bottom of the top bar is 29"???????
Unless the 30" seat height is the top of the padding?????

This may have 19" from engine mount to bottom of top tube.

What ever engine is in there barely fits. How does one remove the gas cap?
A 390-420cc engine is 17.1" - 17.4"tall. I'm guessing this is a 390-420cc engine. Looks like this has about 17.5" to fit a 17.4" engine.

So I guess if it can fit a 420cc with the Gas Tank and has a horizontal top tube, it can fit this (depending on the mounting style)

Looks like it would fit then. Would be a pretty fun minibike with 5 gears and a clutch.

I'm working on personal stuff right now, I have exams all next week and just haven't had time to be on here as much as usual. I am going to box it up and find some dimensions and get a good shipping quote so I can sell it and hopefully have some money for the holidays. I bolted it down to some plywood to act as a base earlier, I just need to get some cardboard.

Yeah I still have it, its been packed in a box in my garage, and I haven't had time to do anything more with it. I figured out it weighs to much for regular shipping, and freight is expensive.

Any chance we can move forward with this? I replied to your PM regarding the shipping quote.

The guy just dropped off the face of the planet. I'm still interested in the engine, if he has it...

Been offline a while. I ended up keeping this to put it on a baja warrior. Sorry
