I know what you mean. I am also always surprised that what I try make actually works. I still look at my minibike sometimes and think "I made that, and it runs..."

Is it just me or is the back sitting crooked? Sorry to sound picky (but, hey, that's me). In the pic next to the BMW, showing the back, everything looks lop-sided. Is it just the ground or something more sinister?

I think it is the angle at which the pic was taken

Quick little update... I got bad news.. the motor is toast and i really dont want the hassle of getting all the parts together and also rebuilding the top end.. Good news is i found a chinese 250 dirtbike for real cheap. ikik it chinese junk blah blah but i have notice through my own experiences that if you take car of these engines they last just as long as any other brand name ones but i always tend to throw honda carbs on them helps alot..

Ok, that explains it, glad it was something simple.

Hmm, this is not so simple, in fact, it sux the big one...

Depending on how bad you motor is, it may be more worthwhile fixing it rather than having to rebuild you subframe to suit a different motor: 6 of one & 1/2 a dozen of the other

Good news! i picked up a 2007 rocketa 200cc pitbike for 200 bucks today had a title and everything.. the bike was sitting for a while but i brought it home put some gas in it and it started right up.. I feel i got a great deal seeing as this is a perfect running bike and plus it came with a brand new tire! On to the reason that i bought this tho.. it has a 200cc 5spd manual w/clutch and electric start but the best part of it is that it has the same mounts as the buggy so i wont have to chop/cut/rebuild.. Hope everybody likes it!

Well, that shuts me up. It seems you got lucky, well done.

Side note: You may have to think about changing the title of this thread; this is turning out to be a very cool mini buggy...
