I've listened to a discussion about breaking 100 mph in a minibike drag race. Not sure 1/4 mile probably???

It was Charles MinidragBike Mosley himself. LOL

He said you need 50 HP and and like a 130 lb jockey IIRC.

I know he said 50HP, not sure what weight he said for a jockey???


Need a little man with big "shoes" to get 100 mph, or a really big engine. From what I've heard.

Not going to lie. Being able to flip bottles over my head made me at least an extra $100 tonight.
$25 per shift is going towards the 2017 build off.

8 months (need time to tune)
5 shifts per weak
8 days a freak.

Budget: way too much!!!!
You know how expensive it is to make a $99 engine into a 20 HP beast????

Still can't lie. I'm certain that bar tender is the best job on the planet.

Nice man. More people here should build motorized bicycles with these engines. You get so much more practicality since you can take them on the road legally (sometimes semi-legally)
