Default Not quite a minibike...

So went on the usual Monday scraprun and found this lil' beauty sitting at the base of the pile. Not in too bad of shape and I've wanted one of these since I was little so good score for me. Though big question is how do I wanna build it? I could just go on ebay, get the parts I need and cruise around the old fashioned way or I can take one of the hundreds of small engines laying around and slap it on. I was half tempted to get a 79cc Predator but that's not in OCC fashion. Also got a Honda Elite 150 engine, AMF 250cc, or just get on of those Lifan Gy6 engines.

Any suggestions? Theme is to keep it rusty.

It gets a little tight putting a motor in. Some raise the upper tube for more clearance, but not me.

That thing would look cool with a little engine on. Nothing big, just enough to get you going nicely

Saw this one and thought of you, Mindy. https://asheville.craigslist.org/mcy/6161177896.html

Crude but shows some ideas and the engine, whatever it is, seems to fit...sorta. Rather well, actually.
Could benefit from a helluva lot better execution but that goes without saying...

Sure is hideous.
Stole some of the photos from the ad for posterity and am placing them here, if only to cause nausea.
