You've got 3 pedals there, so you are obligated to use a m/c or ATV engine. Since the frame is pretty substantial, I recommend as big an engine as possible.

Lifan makes a 4+R speed engine? Where?

Sorry last link was wrong. Sorry it's a mobile link. https://m.ebay.com/itm/125cc-4-strok...d=272945422942


Well as it turns out that listing is no longer available. But they do make them, Greg at Red Beard's Garage was/is using one on the shifter kart. Look at the first video of it and that's what he's using. So they are out there, but rare to find. Next bet would be a Yamaha Raptor 250 at the low end or get the 660. Reverse isnt always needed but it is nice to have.

Its actually alot lighter weight then you would think, i was thinking about putting a predator 420cc with a forward reverse gear or a modded 212cc. Im removing the clutch pedal probably end up cutting them all off the person who built it went weld crazy lol gotta remove the shifter also
