Default Bike ID please

Trying to get any information about this bike I can.

I think it's 49cc also, and if so that just won't do lol. Any ideas on engine swaps, performance parts etc is also welcomed.

Yeah, that's kinda what I'm thinking about the engine. My first mini bike project, so I'm not sure which direction to go first. I'd like to keep the electric start capability, if possible, but definitely want more power.

I doubt you are going to find that out. It is probably one of those Chinese made no name brands

Yup. Thatís exactly what Iíve been seeing after I finally got a good look at the bike. Itís a ďTerminatorĒ brand, if you want to call it a brand lol. The search for a replacement engine is on now, predator might be the one I end up with but Iím going to try and find an electric start engine first. Looks like I have decent space once I remove the plastic bs, like that fake v-twin engine. Iím not sure how difficult it will be to find parts, but I am going to be searching tonight.

I gave a new 3.5hp sitting in a box I might use. I also have a 105cc off a honda 3 wheeler I just got. I might try the 3.5 with a clutch then if I think I need more I will throw a torque converter on it and if that still isn't enough I will go with the 105cc.

Would GY6 style engines work? I'd like to make it look as close to a "real chopper" as possible but don't see that happening.
